Student receives prestigious award at the Statehouse

STATEHOUSE – State Representative Bill Friend (R-Macy) congratulates Jason K. Hawes from Logansport for receiving the 2013 Comcast Leaders & Achievers Scholarship today. The award recognizes high school seniors for their outstanding leadership skills, high academic performance and participation in community service projects.

“Congratulations to Jason and his family for being recognized with this scholarship,” said Rep. Friend. “Jason has distinguished himself in his community and at school by being a leader and a good student.”

Beginning annually in 2000, Comcast reaches out to high school guidance counselors and principals to recognize the brightest seniors as the nation’s “leaders and achievers.” The award recipients were nominated for their extensive involvement in their schools and participation in various service projects that positively impact their communities.

Since 2001, Comcast has awarded approximately $19 million in scholarship funds to more than 19,000 students across the nation. Hawes, who attends Logansport High School in Northern Indiana, was one of 49 Hoosier students to receive the $1,000 award. 

“Students have many jobs on their plate, in addition to doing well in school. It is encouraging to see students like Jason flourish in the responsibilities he takes on as a leader in and out of school. This will help him succeed in whatever endeavors he chooses to take on in the future.” said Rep. Friend.

The award was presented by First Lady Karen Pence at the Indiana Statehouse.
