Weixel receives civic leadership award
Secretary of State A. Ralph Mollis has honored a Jamestown teenager with the 2008 State High School Civic Leadership Award, which is given annually to seniors who make outstanding contributions to their schools and their hometowns.
Jacqueline Weixel, from the Rocky Hill School, was the honoree.
"This award recognizes students who show an understanding of the importance civic duty has in a democratic society," Mollis said. "These students take the principles of civics and put them into action through their community and school involvement, as well as their personal academic success."
