State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) presented a commendation to honor Elena Paparizos, Independence High School Senior, for her “Youth in Philanthropy” Award.


On November 6, 2015, Elena Paparizos, was honored with the “Youth in Philanthropy” Award presented by the Association of Fundraising Professionals Cleveland Chapter.  She was nominated by Karen Kannenburg, CFRE, Cleveland Metroparks.  The award is presented to a young person in Northeast Ohio who demonstrates an outstanding commitment through volunteerism, encouragement, and motivation to his or her peers, to taking on leadership roles in philanthropy.


The National Philanthropy Day Awards Luncheon was held at LACENTRE Conference and Banquet Facility in Westlake where more than 500 business and civic leaders were present.


Elena was included in the November issue of both Cleveland Magazine and Inside Business with a feature story.  Second Story Productions of Cleveland also produced a video about her philanthropic initiatives.  Her high school counselor, Mary Dolejs, narrated the video.


“Elena is an outstanding young woman who has already accomplished so many great things for her community,” Rep. Anielski said.  “She is much deserving of this prestigious award, and I look forward to many more achievements in Elena’s future.”
