Dr. G. Michael Killenberg, founder of the NNB, spoke of the Bureau's inception.

"Peggy really inspired me," said Killenberg. "[She] shattered cliches of vision all the time."

On behalf of the Neighborhood News Bureau, Dr. Tony Silvia presented a personal plaque to the Honorable Frank Peterman, Jr. and his family in honor of his late mother, Peggy M. Peterman.

"My mother was a kind a gentle person mixed with a fiery side," Peterman said in a tearful speech. "She didn't pull any punches."

"She often said, 'I wouldn't take nothing for my dreams,'" said Peterman.
