Congratulations to Bella Kissell who was awarded the Youth Congressional Gold Medal by Joe Cunningham in Washington DC! Bella Kissell, a rising senior at Bishop England, has proven to be a leader in her community and beyond.
The Congressional Award is the United States Congress’ award for young Americans and offers young people the opportunity to set a personal goal and achieve it. Each level involves setting goals in four program areas; Voluntary Public Service, Personal Development, Physical Fitness, and Expedition/Exploration. This program is a great opportunity for students to demonstrate other dimensions of their character beyond academic success. Since participation in this program is voluntary, the choice to participate speaks well of the student who takes it on.
