Lawrence North Senior Receives MCCOY Award
Lawrence North High School senior Kierra Hudson is a winner of the Excellence in Summer Service Education Award chosen by the Marion County Commission on Youth. The awards program, sponsored by the Summer Youth Fund Program partners, highlights the work, commitment, and service young people provide the community as full-time staff or volunteers in Marion County summer youth programs.
The mission of MCCOY is to be the catalyst for the positive development of youth, making sure the community provides all young people with the supports and opportunities needed to become positive, productive, and contributing citizens.
Hudson served in the Indiana Minority Health Coalition agency. The award includes a certificate of recognition and a $1,000 check to be used by Hudson for education-related expenses, such as buying books or equipment, paying tuition or fees for a special learning experience, or making a deposit in an education savings account.
