PHILADELPHIA (April 22, 2015) – Philadelphia District Attorney R. Seth Williams today announced that George D. Mosee, Jr., Deputy District Attorney for the Juvenile Division was honored with the Support Center for Child Advocates’ 2015 Distinguished Advocate Award.
“I can think of no better organization out there fighting and serving abused and neglected children than the Support Center for Child Advocates, and I can think of no better person than George Mosee to win the 2015 Distinguished Advocate Award,” said District Attorney Seth Williams. “George is compassionate, dedicated and a true advocate for children and the promise and potential that each and every one of them has within in them. Congratulations my friend.”
The ceremony not only commemorated the Support Center for Child Advocates’ 38 years as the nation’s leading pro bono legal and social service advocacy organization but celebrated some of the region’s most dedicated public servants.
“This award is an honor,” said George D. Mosee, Jr., Deputy District Attorney, Juvenile Division. “And it’s especially meaningful because it comes from the Support Center which, under the leadership of Executive Director Frank Cervone, is shaping juvenile justice policy in Pennsylvania and advocating for the children we serve. I don’t receive this award alone because I stand with and thank all the men and women of the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office and, in particular, the Juvenile Division for their amazing work.”
