Bordas & Bordas announces anti-bullying award ambassadors

WHEELING — Bordas & Bordas announced this week 14 students from schools in Ohio, Marshall and Belmont counties who are recipients of its Anti-Bullying Fighting for Justice Award.

The award was created in 2014 by Bordas & Bordas founder Jim Bordas and honors each Anti-Bullying Ambassador with a $500 cash prize.

The criteria for students nominated includes treating everyone equally, respecting differences in others and standing up for those who are targeted by others or are discriminated against.

“We would like to congratulate the 2020 Bordas & Bordas Anti-Bullying Ambassadors,” said managing partner Jamie Bordas. “The challenges of being a teenager are a lot different in today’s world. Being kind and treating others with respect is important through all stages of life, and the winners of this award have learned this at an early age and have made an impact that deserves to be recognized.”

The 2020 award recipients:

∫ Spencer Jarrett of Beallsville

∫ Heather Mehlman of Bellaire

“We would normally host a reception to honor the winners, but we have made the decision to recognize them from a distance this year,” Bordas said. “We wish the Anti-Bullying ambassadors and the class of 2020 the best of luck in their future endeavors.”

Bordas & Bordas is a plaintiff’s litigation law firm of 18 attorneys based in Wheeling, with offices in Pittsburgh, St. Clairsville and Moundsville.
