Peggy Busick, Children’s Center board member, received a Lewis Hine Award for Service to Children and Youth from the National Child Labor Committee (NCLC). She received the award during a ceremony on February 18 in New York City.

Busick was one of ten honorees for the award, which is named for the acclaimed NCLC photographer who documented early-20th century exploitation of children and whose photos were instrumental to the passage of the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938. The award honors individuals for their unheralded and exceptional service to young people.

Busick has worked to ensure mental health services are provided to children for more than two decades. She now serves on the Children’s Center Steering Committee, leading the nonprofit’s $6 million capital campaign.
