Jordan Chrispin Earns President's Award
Jordan Chrispin
Each year the Killingworth Chamber presents a deserving student with the President's Award, consisting of $1,000 toward college tuition. The student is chosen based on well-rounded academic achievement and involvement with our great community through community service. HK Senior Jordan Chrispin was the 2016 recipient, having earned it through his continuous pursuit of improving his academic resume and his many community service hours. Jordan also contributed to several HK Clubs, including SADD, Peer Advocates, and the Student Advisory Committee. As he pursues a career in business, we wish him all the best in his college experience and future endeavors.

As I presented this award to Jordan at the Senior Awards Night on June 1st, I thought how one day I hope to be in the audience when our son, who is entering kindergarten in the fall, might hopefully accept an award. As I watched students receive awards from all the great organizations, foundations, and charities presenting that night, I understood how lucky we are to have good schools in our region. The amount of academic achievement, community involvement, and all around school spirit made me feel proud and excited to see what the future holds for our younger generation in town. Every student that night is a proven leader and bound to succeed in whatever path they chose.

Congratulations and best of luck to all the HK graduates!
