Freshman Jedin Truong earned a Certificate of Achievement and the President's Volunteer Service Silver Award as one of O'Neill's top volunteers of the year. The honor was granted as part of the Prudential Spirit of Community Awards, a nationwide youth volunteer recognition program sponsored by Prudential Financial in partnership with the National Association of Secondary School Principals.
Jedin earned the award based on volunteer work he did last summer at a science research program at the United States Aeromedical Research Laboratory (USAARL) in Fort Rucker, Alabama. There, he assisted in the nanotechnology department, both through work in the lab and through his guidance to others.
