Stuyvesant High School senior Soham Daga, of Forest Hills, was honored by Rep. Grace Meng (D-Flushing) in Washington, DC last Thursday for his tireless community service throughout the borough.
They are joined here by Rep. Joe Crowley (D-Bronx, Queens).
Daga was one of 283 students from across the country presented with the Congressional Award Gold Medal, the legislative branch’s highest award for youth.
Hundreds of hours engaging in community service, personal development and physical fitness activities are required to be eligible for the honor.
To complete such requirements, Daga served as a Boy Scouts volunteer and the captain of his high school debate team.
