Barlow student presented with award named for man killed on 9/11

The Peter Burton Hanson Award has been presented to Jason Smith. 


Every year since 2004, Joel Barlow High School has marked the anniversary of the September 11th attacks with a ceremony celebrating the life of Peter Burton Hanson, an Easton resident and 1987 Barlow graduate. He died at the age of 32 aboard United airlines flight 175, along with his wife Sue and daughter Christine, age 2, the youngest victim of the tragedy. 


The award was created by the Hanson family to be presented each year to a Barlow student who embodies Peter's characteristics of dedication to social justice, appreciation of cultural differences, love of the arts, concern for the environment, volunteerism, and sensitivity to the issue of peace.
