Sun Named "Young Hero"

Canterbury's Edward Sun '23 is one of ten selected winners of the Young Hero Award by Philadelphia's National Library Museum and TD Bank.

The Young Heroes Award recognizes young individuals who have taken action to make positive social change in their schools and communities. Each year, the award recognizes young individuals who have championed liberty by engaging in civic activities. 

Edward was recognized as a young hero with his achievement of using his love of music to found Second Strings, a charity project committed to keeping the music community strung together by recycling, reusing, and rescuing musical equipment. Since their start, Second Strings has donated over $10,000 dollars in strings collected from across the Midwest and Canada.

Winners receive recognition at an awards ceremony, and their stories are featured for one year in a Museum exhibit. They receive a certificate of achievement, medallion, and other gifts. 

Congratulations, Edward!
