Karson Baldwin '21 Receives National Award

Karson Baldwin '21 has been named one of 15 winners of the 2020 Yale Bassett Award for Community Engagement, an annual nationwide prize that recognizes high school students who demonstrate a record of creative leadership and public service, academic distinction, interdisciplinary problem solving, and experience addressing societal issues.

Winners were selected from a pool of more 1,000 candidates and will receive a book chosen by the faculty of the Yale Center for the Study of Race, Indigeneity & Transnational Migration, and an invitation to attend an award reception at Yale in the fall.

Now in its fourth year, the Yale Bassett Award honors the legacy of Ebenezer Bassett, an influential educator and abolitionist, and first African American and first Native American ambassador to a foreign nation.

Congratulations Karson!
