Whitney McGinnes receives Young Leader Award
Rhode Island General Treasurer Seth Magaziner hosted a virtual ceremony recognizing 55 high school juniors from across Rhode Island with the General Treasurer’s
Young Leader Award on Monday, May 10.
Among those recipients was Whitney McGinnes, daughter of Mike and Trish McGinnes, and a junior at the Block Island School.
The Young Leader Award is presented to high school juniors across the state who have demonstrated outstanding achievement in math, economics, finance, and business-related courses, and who are active in their community. Since 2015, Treasurer Magaziner has recognized over 350
Rhode Island students with this achievement.
“These students are the leaders of tomorrow, who are both dedicated to their studies and supporting their community in meaningful ways,” said Magaziner. “I am incredibly impressed by their resiliency in the face of many challenges this past year, and I am more hopeful than ever of the bright future we are building here in Rhode Island, with these students soon leading the way.”
