Congressman Jack Kingston toured Valdosta State this morning and awarded Dennis Harris the Congressional Award Gold Medal.

The medal symbolizes Harris' achievements in four areas: public service, personal development, physical fitness and exploration.

It's the highest government honor bestowed upon America's youth.

"What it says is that Dennis Harris is a serious person," said Kingston (R-GA). "He wants to contribute to society. He wants to improve himself. he wants to stay physically and mentally fit. But he also wants to keep his heart in the right place."

Harris performed more than 400 hours of community service at an area Boy's & Girls Club and soup kitchen.
