Chatham Middle School is proud to announce that eighth graders Jordin Radley and Holden Spock are our school’s nominees for the 2021 Siena College Student Courage Award, which honors students who actively promote the ideal of a just and inclusive society that values diversity and uniqueness.
Holden shows great empathy for the world around him and is passionate for the welfare of others. He is a Key Communicator for his 8th grade class and Co-vice President of National Jr. Honor Society, through which he conducts service projects that benefit both his school culture and local senior citizens. He volunteers at many festivals in his community and is also active in sports, where he displays great sportsmanship.
Jordin is an advocate for all students, particularly those who may need a friend; she chooses kindness and is a patient listener to all. She is a volunteer in her school’s Peer Buddy program and is Co-vice President of National Jr. Honor Society, through which she takes on numerous service projects that are inclusive of people both young and old. She balances her leadership responsibilities with her love of softball.
Jordin and Holden join other students from around the greater Capital Region in being nominated for this award. A committee of area leaders in social justice issues will review the nominations and select three recipients to be honored as part of the College’s Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King Lecture Series.
