Widener University in Chester, Pennsylvania, recognized Anthony Buscemi, of Clayton, as a winner of the Widener University High School Leadership Awards.

In its seventh year, the program is recognizing 175 students from high schools throughout the region for their abilities to stand up for what is right, address a wrong and make a difference in their communities or schools.

Buscemi, from Smyrna High School, has made a difference by going out of his way to be kind and supportive to students with disabilities.

"Through the High School Leadership Awards, Widener University has the unique opportunity to celebrate students in our region who make a difference by demonstrating notable leadership," said Julie Wollman, Widener University president. "This year we are honored to recognize students like Anthony, who embody our university's core principles of character and leadership to make a difference in their own communities. I look forward to celebrating Anthony and all of the 2018 High School Leadership Award recipients at our upcoming awards ceremony."
