Dominic Esposito ’18 has earned the Congressional Award Gold Medal. The distinction is awarded to participants who complete a minimum of 400 hours of voluntary public service, 200 hours of personal development, and 200 hours of physical fitness, and spend at least five consecutive days and four nights exploring a new environment or culture.

For the past two years, Dominic has been consistently working to achieve this award. His service work has included organizing and running the Scrap Hunger Walk on Make A Difference Day for the past two years. This year’s event raised over $2,000 to benefit The FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties.

In earning the distinction, Dominic will be recognized next June by his U.S. Representative at a ceremony to be held in Washington DC. Congratulations to Dominic on this wonderful milestone and achievement.
