MADISON -- On January 18, Edgewood High School (EHS) once again hosted the Urban League of Greater Madison as they celebrated the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., with an Outstanding Young Person Breakfast.

This breakfast attracted more than 900 youth, families, and community leaders.

Many schools from all across Dane County nominate middle and high school students for the Outstanding Young Person Award based on their academic performance, community service, and extra-curricular participation.

Eleven students from EHS received Outstanding Young Person Awards. In addition to his nomination for the Outstanding Young Person Award, EHS senior Landry Ndahayo was one of only three Dane County students to receive the 2015 Betty Franklin Hammonds Scholarship.

Edgewood is very proud to be a part of the MLK Day breakfast celebration every year, and congratulates Landry and all the Outstanding Young Person award winners. They have been wonderful role models and examples of living the mission at Edgewood High School.
