Bensalem High School senior Oluseyi Oduntan is being recognized by the United Nations Association of the USA and InnerView in the 7th annual Community Service Impact Awards.

This program, open to all U.S. students, has been designed to connect student community service activities, skill development and commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals to transform the world. The Kroger Co. is presenting the 5th annual Zero Hero Awards to students for taking action to help create communities free of hunger and waste.

“The Sustainable Development Goals provide a framework for addressing the world’s most pressing challenges. They also present a unique opportunity for UN member states, grassroots organizations and advocates to work together to create a better future for everyone,” said Rachel Bowen Pittman, executive director of the United Nations Association of the USA. “Youth play a pivotal role in driving change forward, now more than ever. As an intergenerational movement of dedicated Americans, UNA-USA is committed to supporting the vital work of the United Nations and SDGs. We are thrilled to partner with InnerView again this year and celebrate the impact youth have made in advancing the SDGs. Congratulations to this year’s awardees for their dedication and inspired action.”

Oduntan is an AP scholar, published poet, student school board member and member of Young Ambassadors of Pennsylvania. She is an officer of both the National Honor Society and Community Service Club, president of Colors for Coats, and co-president and co-founder of the Red Cross Club. Outside of school, she enjoys reading, playing the piano, volunteering and running. Oduntan plans to attend the University of Pittsburgh, major in biochemistry and become a pharmaceutical scientist.
