RHS Senior Jaesung Son Receives Congressional Award for Volunteerism

Jaesung Son, a senior at Ridgewood High School, started an after school program in a neighboring town where he taught younger children how to play the violin In the evening. Little did he know how his act of volunteerism would be rewarded. On December 5, Jaesung was awarded the Silver Medal Congressional Award for Volunteerism, in honor of the more than 200 dedicated hours of volunteer work. The award was presented personally by Ridgewood’s local House Representative, Congressman Scott Garrett. The United States Congress established the Congressional Award in 1979 to recognize and reward initiative, achievement, and service in young people.
