COLCHESTER, Vt. --Samuel Medina of San Antonio and a student at St. Gerard Catholic High School was named the 2012 recipient of the Saint Michael’s College Book Award for Academic Achievement with a Social Conscience. Saint Michael’s College is located in Burlington, Vt.

The award recognizes students who demonstrate a commitment to leadership in volunteer service and academic achievement.

Award recipients, named at schools throughout the country, are high school juniors who are inductees of the National Honor Society or an equivalent school-sponsored honors organization. They must demonstrate a commitment to service activities in high school or community organizations, taking leadership roles in these activities.

Medina was presented the book, First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers (HarperCollins 2000) by Loung Ung, a 1993 Saint Michael’s College graduate who has become a widely acclaimed author.

In First They Killed My Father, Ung gives a powerful autobiographical account, from a child’s perspective, of surviving captivity during the genocidal Pol Pot regime in Cambodia.
