WASHINGTON, D.C. -- A young Lockport man has received one of the highest honors given to American young people.
18-year-old Jonathan Gidley, a senior at Christian Central Academy, received the Congressional Award Gold medal at a ceremony at the U.S. Capitol. It was presented to him by Congressman Chris Collins.
Gidley performed over 400 hours of community service and 200 hours of both personal development and physical fitness activities.
He'll attend Texas A&M on a Naval ROTC scholarship in the fall.
