Susquehannock Alumni Association Presents Alumni Spirit Award
October 16, 2018
Susquehannock High School student Jensen Perry was recently awarded the Susquehannock Alumni Association’s ninth annual Alumni Spirit Award. The award was presented during half time of Susquehannock High School’s homecoming football game on October 12, 2018 and is awarded to an individual who exemplifies outstanding school spirit for an extended period of time.
Perry is known for his positive attitude and perseverance. In late June 2018, Perry was flown to Penn State Hershey Medical Center where he underwent emergency heart surgery and spent 42 days in the intensive care unit. He is recovering and has since returned to school.
Susquehannock High School teacher Tom Laure congratulated Perry on his achievement. “I think Jensen is deserving of this recognition because his spirit is what rallied our community together this summer and into the fall,” Laure said. “He received so much love and support, because of all the love and support he gives his classmates and community in all aspects,” added Laure.
This is the first time that a current Susquehannock High School student earned this award.
