The Beacon Awards are aptly named for nominees like Jackie St. Peter. “A beacon is there so others can find it, it’s a light that shines above all others. That is who Jackie is to this community,” says the person who nominated her. She has volunteered for Mary Wade Home, Gaylord Hospital, Greater New Haven Warriors, North Haven PTA, Shoreline Chamber of Commerce – Taste the Shoreline, Dancing with the Stars, Special Olympics, NHHS Hockey, and Blades Hockey. In addition to her volunteer work and full-time job, she also helped to take care of her uncle who had multiple myeloma.
