Highlighting a Local Hero

Highlighting a Local Hero

Ricky Petty, Project Director, Healthier Boynton Beach


In June 2020,  Healthier Boynton Beach Project Director Ricky Petty received the Palm Beach Illustrated/Eau Palm Beach Local Heroes Award in recognition of his service to the community during the COVID-19 crisis. In addition to this recognition, Petty received a complimentary 2-night stay at Eau Palm Beach.


The foundation was proud to co-nominate Ricky for this award alongside Luvenia Corbin, a Boynton Beach senior who received much needed food and supplies and constant check-ins from Ricky after the virus hit. She is among many other seniors in the community who are cared for and kept safe with Ricky’s help. Congratulations, Ricky, on this much deserved honor.


“Ricky doesn’t hesitate to assist you in any endeavor. He cares and loves the community that he grew up in. We’re very proud of him.” 
– Michelle Davis, Ricky’s former elementary school teacher and the former senior care director of Community Caring Center of Palm Beach County
