Hartland High School’s senior class president, captain of the varsity swim and dive team, MHSSA scholar athlete and Homecoming king Bryan Condra added another award to his long resume of accomplishments.
The Hartland senior was awarded the 2012 “Young Person of Distinction” award by the Livingston County United Way on Thursday, which is a “community-wide, county-wide recognition and comes from a human service perspective,” according to United Way Director Nancy Rosso.
“He’s an amazing young person,” Rosso said. “The list goes on and on and when I was giving him the award I didn’t even read half the stuff on the list.”
Aside from also being a varsity athlete in several sports, Condra is also a member of the National Honor Society, an Eagle Scout and a member of the St. Augustine Parish where he teaches religious education and vacation Bible School.
Condra also volunteers on a weekly basis in the Hartland elementary schools, reading to the young students. He also helped create and run the Be the Change group at Hartland High School that is focused on ending bullying in schools and online.
Nominations for the “Young Person of Distinction” award are sent in by the community but the winner is actually voted on and chosen by past recipients of the award.
