The Peace MVP Award recognizes community leaders that have been instrumental in promoting peace and preventing gun violence throughout Massachusetts. Previous honorees include Cindy Diggs, Chaplain Clementina Chéry, Speaker Robert DeLeo, and Attorney General Maura Healey. Previous events have attracted audiences of more than 400 people.
This year we are excited to honor Coach Dennis Wilson, a tireless community activist, educator, and Emmy nominated and award-winning film producer. Dennis is a retired Boston High School History teacher and Dean of Discipline who served in the school system for over thirty years. Co-founder of Kreateabuzz Films with director Rudy Hypolite, he is a co-producer of This Ain’t Normal and the main character in the award-winning documentary film entitled PUSH: Madison versus Madison. He is the co-founder of the highly successful Boston Raider Youth and Cheerleaders Program, a pioneering organization impacting at-risk youth. “Coach Wilson,” as he’s called, is the Head Coach of Boys Basketball at Madison Park Technical and Vocational High School and has been selected three-times as Division One Mass State “Coach of the Year.”
