2018 American Red Cross Local Hero Award: Emmanuel Mensah presented by Wells Fargo
The highlight of the night was posthumously presenting the American Red Cross Local Hero Award to Army Pfc. Emmanuel Mensah. In December 2018, Pfc. Mensah was visiting his family in the Bronx, NY, when a fire broke out. As the blaze raged out of control, Pfc. Mensah ran in and out of the apartment building to lead several neighbors to safety. Pfc. Mensah was honored for his heroic actions and service.
