Congratulations to Ladue Horton Watkins High School Senior Robert “Trey” Fruend, who was honored on Sept. 22, 2018, at the Missouri Congressional Award Ceremony at Busch Stadium. Congressman Lacy Clay and Congresswoman Ann Wagner presented Trey with his award.
The Congressional Award Gold Medal is awarded to students who set goals and excel in four areas of individual growth: Volunteer Public Service, Personal Development, Physical Fitness and Expedition/Exploration.
Trey worked for three years to conquer goals in each of the program areas. During this time, he completed over 450 hours of volunteer service, more than 1,500 hours in personal development, and over 1,000 hours in physical fitness. He also planned and executed an exploration of Washington, DC.
Trey will also be honored at the National Congressional Award Ceremony at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. during the summer of 2019. The Congressional Award is the United States Congress’ only charity and the highest honor bestowed upon a youth civilian through the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives.
