And the Winner of the Congressional Medal of Merit is…

The Museum has inspired lots of people over the years, and we love it when “one of our own” inspires us. We have many high school students in the Museum’s Upward Bound program that come to feel like part of the Museum family over their four years in the program, and we are very proud of all of their accomplishments. But today, we want to acknowledge one Upward Bound student in particular on an extraordinary achievement. Alex Gaye was awarded the Congressional Medal of Merit last week for his work as a senior high school student who has demonstrated the qualities of exemplary citizenship and academic excellence throughout his high school career. Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen presented the award to Alex last weekend during her Annual Congressional Recognition Ceremony, held at Coral Gables Senior High School. Congratulations Alex!
