On June 19th, Ron and Cathy Tijerina were honored as "Unsung Heroes" by CBS Radio host Al Cole at the 2015 People of Distinction Humanitarian Awards at The City University of New York Graduate Center!
The People of Distinction Humanitarian Awards are the vision of humanitarian broadcaster and "Chicken Soup for the Soul" author Al Cole. Al, formerly from CBS Radio, had previously created the nationally syndicated talk show "People of Distinction”. On New Year's Day 2013, he made a New Year's resolution to honor courageous, inspiring, and dedicated unsung heroes who make the world a better place through their great humanitarian work. Al has a strong conviction to provide this opportunity for unsung heroes to share their stories of courage, humility, and success.
