Sheridan students receive Congressional Award medals

Two Sheridan students are among nearly 50 Wyoming youth who were presented with Congressional Award medals recently in a ceremony at the Cheyenne Civic Center.

Henry Dickinson and McKailyn Malles received silver medals for their completion of a set of challenging goals in the areas of voluntary public service, personal development, physical fitness and expedition/exploration. Bronze, silver and gold medals were awarded.

To earn a Bronze medal, participants had to complete 100 hours of volunteer service, 50 hours of personal development, 50 hours of physical fitness and a one-night exploration or expedition. To earn a Silver medal, participants had to complete another 100 hours of service, 100 hours of personal development and 100 hours of physical fitness and execute a two-night exploration or expedition.

The Gold medal requires at least 400 hours of volunteer service and involves two or more years.

Eleven of the youth recognized during the ceremony received two or more Congressional Award medals.
