ASMS sophomore, Carson Lott from Mobile, Ala., received a prestigious honor this week, for defining and achieving his own challenging goals, the Congressional Medal Award.
“I received the award by completing 100 hours of voluntary public service, 50 hours of personal development, 50 hours of physical fitness, and by taking a two-week expedition to England,” says Lott.
Lott is also the first student in the Mobile district to achieve this honor.
“According to Congressman Byrne and his staff I am the first person from this congressional district to receive the Award and I’m beyond honored,” says Lott.
Lott isn’t stopping at the bronze medal. He has plans to further his achievement.
“I’ve only achieved the Bronze Medal so far, and I plan on reaching the Gold Medal soon,” says Lott. “It means that I will have been awarded the highest award offered by The Congressional Award, Congress’ only charity for young Americans.”
Not only will this honor help Lott in his future endeavors, but it has given him a new outlook on life.
“This award taught me to be selfless, and for that, I believe I will always benefit from,” says Lott.
