ABOUT US

Unsung Heroes is a digital media platform that helps organizations create a stronger culture of appreciation in the workplace.


We partner with colleges and universities to highlight their employees contributions and share their stories of purpose .




OUR STORY


In February 2015, Febin Bellamy, a student at Georgetown University, struck up conversations with one of the custodians, Oneil Batchelor, during his late night study sessions in the business school. The two men bonded immediately.


They found themselves spending hours talking about sports, history, music, and about their dreams of wanting to be entrepreneurs. Oneil mentioned that many people would walk past him in the hallways as if he was invisible.


After learning Oneil’s personal story, Febin interviewed over 100 campus workers and learned about their personal stories, hopes, struggles, dreams, and how each of them played a special role in keeping the school running behind-the-scenes.


In April 2016, he launched Unsung Heroes to share their stories with the Georgetown community in hopes of bridging the divide between students and workers by highlighting their shared humanity.

OUR SCHOOLS



OUR AUDIENCE


- Custodian at Carnegie Mellon University

“I know that students are there for an education and they don’t have much time for small talk, which is why I try to say, good morning as much as a can. It’s not much, but it’s the thought and kind greeting that can make a difference! This needs to spread around to other colleges and universities!”


- Mary Scullion, TIME's 100 Most Influential People

“A powerful example of personal responsibility coupled with tenderness.”




- Parent, Washington University in St. Louis

“The posts in this series are the favorite media I read out of WashU. It assures me that there are incredible people looking out for my son.”
