Jadhon and Jadhken Kerr, basketball players on the University of North Florida women’s team, received the Congressional Award Gold Medal from Congress for dedicating hundreds of hours to voluntary public service, personal development, physical fitness and expedition/exploration.
The Congressional Award Gold Medal is the highest award bestowed by the United States Congress to civilian youth under the age of 23. The Kerr sisters attended an awards ceremony June 25 in Washington, D.C.
“Both Jadhon and Jadhken are not only excellent student-athletes but well-rounded young women who have incorporated voluntary public service into both of their lives,” said UNF President John A. Delaney. “They serve as an inspiration to the University community and we’re honored to have them as part of the student body and UNF Athletics.”
