The annual James Jay Dudley Luce Young Global Leadership Awards are given to young leaders working to better humanity who embody the characteristics of honor, intelligence, benevolence and integrity. Last year we celebrated the leadership of Isaac Kassin and Chris Rim and today we salute the vision of Jesse Pollans and Joey Lowenstein – each an exceptionally strong and committed individual – now united with the J. Luce Foundation team.
Last year, New York City Council issued Proclamations in support of the young leaders. This year, New York State Comptroller Thomas di Napoli took an active interest in the Awardees and issued Proclamations for both Jesse Pollans and Joey Lowenstein, specifically noting Joey’s ability to overcome many challenges to be able to help others with autism discover and share their own gifts. As one of the Comptroller’s staffers noted at the event, “After having the opportunity to get to know your awardees, I can say our future is looking bright!” See the Comptroller’s Proclamation About Joey Here (click).
