At its May 5, 2015 general meeting, the Coronado Democratic Club presented the John F. Kennedy Leadership Award to Alex Seaman, a freshman at Southwestern College. The $500 award recognizes a student who embodies and promotes the values of the Democratic Party.
Seaman is studying biology and aims to become a medical doctor. His experience with politics includes canvassing for Democratic candidates and talking to his friends and neighbors about the importance of voting. He identified foreign policy and the inequality gap as two issues that are particularly important to him. He plans to use the award to help with school expenses.
Chairperson of the award committee, Jean Seager presented the check.
