Local Community Leader Wins National Award

BOSTON (CBS) - A local community leader is getting national recognition, and families all over Boston are applauding.

Randal Rucker is the CEO of Family Service of Greater Boston.

He's been working to help at-risk kids and families for more than 20 years. Including a father and son we profiled a few years back.

Rucker's a big believer in the power of community centers and how they unite people. That's partly why he's getting the Peter B. Goldberg award for community leadership.

There were 70 national finalists.
