CONGRESSIONAL AWARD 2017
Gold Winner: Emily Deese
Deese was awarded the Congressional Award Gold Medal, the highest honor Congress can grant upon a civilian. The award was the culmination of over 800 hours’ worth of personal development and community service.
“She just headed for the gold. Along the way they just said, you earn these,’ and they just sent them to her in the mail,” said Diana Deese, Emily’s mom.
