Outward Bound Philadelphia has presented its prestigious Compass Award to PHS President Jane Pepper and Executive Vice President Blaine Bonham.

The Compass Award is awarded annually to an individual, organization, or group from the Greater Philadelphia region that best demonstrates the fundamental founding principles of the Outward Bound Center, including:

  • Character Development, Leadership and Service
  • Self Discovery and Self Reliance
  • Enterprising Curiosity and Undefeatable Spirit
  • Leadership in Service
  • Respect for the Natural World

Pepper and Bonham received the award at Outward Bound Philadelphia’s 2010 Gala Reception at the Navy Yard on May 11 for their work with Philadelphia Green, the urban greening arm of PHS, which is funded in part by proceeds from the Philadelphia International Flower Show.

The Honorable Michael A. Nutter joined in for an evening of festivities, honors, live music, and hors d’oeuvres to celebrate Outward Bound’s 15 years of the gala.

Thank you, Outward Bound Philadelphia, for such a prestigious award and for inspiring character development and self-discovery in people of all ages.
