WA Student And Alumnus Awarded Congressional Gold Medals

Over the summer, U.S. Congress invited WA junior, Derek Petrisko, and WA alumnus, Christian Petrisko ’18, to Washington, D.C. On June 20, in the nation’s Capitol Building, Congress awarded them the Congressional Gold Medals for their initiative, service, and achievement. Afterward, the brothers then received STEM stars in the Kennedy Caucus Room of the Russell Senate Building. There, they addressed members of both the House of Representatives and the Senate to discuss their work in environmental conservation and protection.
