Neysha Medina, a sophomore studying dental hygiene at Manor College, received the Mother Josaphat Medal, presented to a Manor student who exhibits a responsible lifestyle evidenced through reverence, respect and service. The medal is the highest honor for a student at the college.
“Neysha’s strength is being quietly powerful,” said Dr. Joanne Scorpio, Professor and Dental Health Clinic Coordinator at Manor. “Her actions speak volumes about her character. She routinely participates in activities that benefit the Manor community, but never broadcasts her acts of service. Always kind and positive, Neysha is a pleasure to have as a student.”
Medina is a member of the women’s volleyball team and a Presidential Ambassador. She has a 3.93 GPA. A graduate of Constitution High School, she works in a Sunday School program.
“I would like to thank Manor College for this wonderful opportunity,” Medina said during a ceremony. “I love the connections I’ve made here, which include students, faculty and professors. I’m truly blessed to be at Manor surrounded by great people.”
In addition to Medina, five other students were named finalists for the Mother Josaphat Medal. They are Anthony Caristo, Edward Fortescue Jr., Sarah Marple (an Archbishop Ryan graduate), Zoma Qurashi and Brooke Strassle. ••
