PBCA Honorees

The Patrick Boswell Courage Award


This award honors the memory of Patrick and provides financial support to foster “acts of courage” among middle school students. Students vote for an 8th-grade student who exemplifies positive, productive behavior. It takes courage to say no to guns and gangs and violence. It takes courage to be kind and empathetic to your peers. It takes courage to stand up to bullies and treat people the way you want to be treated. Positive behavior needs to be encouraged, commended and rewarded!


Patrick Lives On will pay up to $500 to the after school or summer camp program of the recipient’s choice.
