Denise Doyle, President of Stop Loss Insurance Brokers, Inc., was selected by Sun Life Insurance to announce and present prize awards to the 2014 Sun Life Rising Star Award winners. The ceremony, held at the TD Bank Garden on Monday, November 17, before a Celtics game versus the Phoenix Suns was highly attended by the business community, the families of the winners, and the media.
The competition for the Rising Star Award was extremely competitive. In addition to being the award presenter, Denise was also on the panel to determine the winners. Applicants submitted essays, letters of recommendation, quantitative results of their efforts, and even videos. “It’s amazing what these young people are doing to affect a positive change in their communities. They are balancing school work with impactful volunteering that is improving lives.”
The winners, Jackensen Verdul, a volunteer with the School on Wheels of Massachusetts, and Chi Kwok, a volunteer at the West End House, are both high school seniors from large school districts in Boston who will receive $5,000 college scholarships and $50,000 for their associated non-profit organizations courtesy of the Sun Life Rising Star Awards Program.
