Anh Nguy, Kingston, a student at Wyoming Seminary College Preparatory School, was named the 2013 recipient of the Saint Michael’s College Book Award for Academic Achievement with a Social Conscience.


The award recognizes students who demonstrate a commitment to leadership in volunteer service and academic achievement. Saint Michael’s, Burlington, Vt., was founded on the belief that serving others is part of its Catholic tradition and through the award seeks to honor those who demonstrate the true spirit of volunteerism.


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.


Nguy received the book “First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers” (HarperCollins 2000) by Loung Ung, a 1993 Saint Michael’s College graduate. The book gives an autobiographical account, from a child’s perspective, of surviving captivity during the genocidal Pol Pot regime in Cambodia.
