The Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce Foundation presented the 2010 Kristin Appelget Civic Engagement Student Awards at the Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce May 6 Monthly Membership Luncheon Meeting at the Marriott Princeton Hotel and Conference Center at Forrestal.

The Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce Foundation presented the 2010 Kristin Appelget Civic Engagement Student Awards at the Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce May 6 Monthly Membership Luncheon Meeting at the Marriott Princeton Hotel and Conference Center at Forrestal. The awards were accepted by the following local junior high school students who have made outstanding contributions to their communities:  Katherine Amigo of West Windsor – Plainsboro High School North; Daniel Fine of Peddie School; Megan Krishnamurthy of Hightstown High School; and Hannah Wagner of Lawrence High School.

“The Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce Foundation seeks to reinforce the goals of civic engagement and social capital by acknowledging the contributions of young people,” said Karen Jezierny, Chair of the Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce Foundation Board of Directors and Director of Public Affairs for Princeton University.
 
Katherine Amigo was honored for her ability to adapt musical training to promote student volunteerism in support of organizations such as Special Olympics and Medical Mission of Mercy USA. Daniel Fine was recognized for his achievements in support of Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International, for which he has dedicated more than 2,000 hours of service and raised nearly $760,000. Megan Krishnamurthy was highlighted for her commitment to community service with organizations such as the Red Cross, Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in Hamilton and Meadow Lakes Assisted Living. Hannah Wagner was noted for her longstanding dedication to HomeFront, where she has volunteered and raised funds since grade school. Hannah’s devotion was so significant that a plaque on one of the rooms at HomeFront’s shelter bears her name.
 
The Foundation recognized these four juniors who made a significant contribution to the social capital of the Princeton Region, established leadership in their civic activities and have demonstrated a sustained commitment to their communities. The Kristin Appelget Civic Engagement Student Awards Program is named for the former CEO & President of the Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce who served from 2003-2006. The Awards program is in its third year.
