Congresswoman Titus Presents Silver Medal to Local Students

On Monday, April 25th, 2016, Congresswoman Dina Titus sat down with local brother and sister, David and Sara Tegtmeyer to discuss the importance of participating in the Congressional Award program and award them with the Congressional Award Silver Medal for their outstanding achievements in commitment and service set forth within the program.

The Congressional Award program is an extracurricular activity that requires full participation of the individual to set their own goals and challenges in all four areas of focus within the program – physical fitness, volunteer service, personal development and exploration/expedition.  How much one wants to accomplish is completely up to each individual, but of course, we encourage all those who are interested to strive for the #GOLD.
