Hero Fund President Eric Zahren, left, and Chair Mark Laskow, right, presented the Carnegie Medal to Phillip H. DiLuca at a private ceremony held Nov. 15, 2019, at the Allegheny HYP Club in Pittsburgh, Pa.
DiLuca, a Clinton (Maine) police officer, traveled to Pittsburgh with police Chief Stanley “Rusty” Bell; Bell’s wife, Selena Bell; DiLuca’s parents, Paul and Monica DiLuca; and DiLuca’s partner Kendra Raven, for the presentation.
“Being able to come down to just appreciate all the history and everything that (the Hero Fund) has done and Andrew Carnegie has done is very special to me. Thank you guys,” DiLuca said.
