Freshman Connor Morgado Receives Presidential Service Award

Posted March 30th, 2012


St. Augustine Prep freshman Connor Morgado was awarded the Presidential Service Award by contributing over 100 hours of service to his community in 2011.  The award was presented to him by Congressman Frank LoBiondo who also gave Connor a private tour of the US Capitol Building.  Connor has achieved the Presidential Service Award four times since he was eight years old but this is the first time he received the rare treat of a tour and breakfast in the House of Representatives dining room with the Congressman.  The day was highlighted by Connor sitting in the Congressman’s private chair overlooking the Capitol Building, standing on the very spot where every president has stood before entering the House for a State of the Union address, standing on the balcony where newly inaugurated Presidents have stood, riding the underground monorail from the Rayburn Office to the House, and being introduced to the Speaker of the House, John Bohner.

Way to go Connor!
