Chapel Guarnieri was honored as a member of the Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women's 2012 class of Unsung Heroines.
State Rep. Sheila C. Harrington recommended Guarnieri for this recognition because of her exemplary work and support she gives for today's service men and women.
Guarnieri was honored with the other Unsung Heroines for her outstanding contributions to the community in a ceremony on Wednesday, May 16 in the Great Hall at the Statehouse in Boston.
The Unsung Heroines are women who don't make the news, but make the difference. They are the women who use their time, talent and enthusiasm to enrich the lives of others and make a difference in their neighborhoods, cities and towns.

These women are the glue that keeps a community together, and every community has them.
Harrington said, "Chapel is one of the most outstanding young women I have ever met. The love and support she has for our troops is nothing short of exceptional. She has been involved with many volunteer efforts for our service men, women, and their families including: Cookie drops, card collections, veteran's breakfasts, and so much more.
