Unsung Heroes was inspired by the idea that everyone from gardeners and security guards to secretaries and office assistants plays an important role in creating a safe and healthy learning environment for students.
In February 2015, Febin Bellamy, a student at Georgetown University, struck up conversations with a janitor in the library. The two found themselves spending hours talking about sports and music and bonded over their common humanity. This interaction inspired Febin to interview hundreds of faculty and staff on campus. He founded Unsung Heroes to share their stories of humanity and help build a stronger sense of community on campus.
We are a media company on a mission to celebrate the unsung heroes who do amazing things for their campus community.
We work with high schools and colleges to create uplifting, meaningful, and shareable content that promotes a stronger sense of community.
