Rosenthal brothers to be honored posthumously with award
Brothers Cecil and David Rosenthal will be honored posthumously through an award to be given out for the first time Tuesday night by ACHIEVA, an organization that works with individuals with disabilities.
The inaugural “Cecil and David Rosenthal Community Award” will be accepted by their sisters, Diane and Michele Rosenthal, ACHIEVA officials said in a news release. In the future, the award will recognize a person with developmental or intellectual disabilities who has become a beloved part of their community.
The Rosenthal brothers, who were long-time recipients of ACHIEVA’s services, were among the 11 people killed in the Oct. 27 shooting at Tree of Life Congregation in Pittsburgh’s Squirrel Hill. Through ACHIEVA, Cecil was set to begin working at Iron City Workplace Servicesa.
ACHIEVA’s annual Awards of Excellence ceremony will be held Tuesday night at the Sheraton in Station Square.
