Secretary of State Honors Two PCD Students with 2019 Civic Leadership Award


Two Providence Country Day School Juniors - Odelia Kabessa and Elliott Trendell – were honored by Rhode Island Secretary of State Nellie Gorbea on May 17th at a special ceremony celebrating the 2019 Rhode Island Civic Leadership Award winners. The award is given annually to recognize high school juniors who have made outstanding contributions to their schools and communities. Nominated by Associate Head of School Mark McLaughlin, Kabessa and Trendell were selected for their achievements related to public service, leadership, and academics. More than 150 students from 77 Rhode Island schools were honored for their civic efforts, which ranged from mentoring young children to volunteering to help feed the homeless and activity in student government. The Civic Leadership Awards are part of Secretary Gorbea's mission to engage and empower Rhode Islanders by connecting them with their government and encouraging civic pride.
