Meet Nevada’s 2nd Gold Medalist for 2015

Michael Negraru, a junior at Coral Academy of Science Las Vegas, is the second Gold Medalist to come out of Congressman Joe Heck’s district, District 3, this year. Upon starting the process when he was a freshman, Negraru describes his experience participating in the Congressional Award program in this insightful video.

Out of the 271 young people who earned the Congressional Award Gold Medal this year, we are proud to contribute two to that number from our own backyard.
