It was a weekend of glory for Ghanaians in Worcester, Massachusetts, during the annual  African Youth Excellence Awards ceremony.
Abraham Attah grabbed all the headlines after being presented with a key to the city by the mayor of Worcester, Joseph M. Petty – after winning an award during the awards night itself.
But Ghana’s investigative journalist extraordinaire, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, also had a pretty big role. He delivered the night’s keynote address, and was later rewarded with the Excellence in Journalism award for his advocacy for human rights and anti-corruption work.
Anas, like Attah, also received a key to Worcester from Mayor Petty. His commitment to exposing corruption and human rights abuses was lauded for saving the lives of ‘countless children and adults’.
The ‘key to the city’ program ran by numerous cities honours outstanding individuals for spectacular lifetime achievements.
