Bensalem senior recognized by United Nations


Bensalem High School senior Oluseyi Oduntan is being recognized by the United Nations Association of the USA (UNA-USA) and InnerView in the seventh Annual Community Service Impact Awards.

The 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 (SDGs) to transform the world.

“The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 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 work of 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.”

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