Congressional Awards Ceremony
Thursday, October 6th, 2022: 13 Syracuse Academy of Science High School students were honored at a ceremony as they received congressional awards. These students have been participating in The Congressional Awards program since October 2021. Every Saturday, Mr. Yaman and Mr. Turgay’s students set aside a portion of their day to work on their Congressional Award requirements. On top of the hours they spend on their personal development and physical fitness, they serve their community and earn community service hours by volunteering their time at the Thrifty Shopper store in East Syracuse.
These students visited multiple cities throughout their journeys, such as Boston, NYC, and Washington, DC. They camped in the Adirondacks, exploring their country by meeting the Congressional Award Expedition/Exploration requirement.
Hard work pays off, and we are so proud of our scholars for meeting their goals and receiving this high honor from the United States Congress. Congratulations, Atoms!
