Washington Park High School student Jason Donald is the only student in the state nominated for the Student Readiness Award that’s part of the annual ACT College and Career Readiness Campaign.

He will go to Madison this month for the official recognition.

From the Racine Unified website, “The third annual ACT College and Career Readiness Campaign celebrates the achievements of students, schools and businesses that demonstrate success in preparing for education, careers and beyond.”

Donald, who will attend Carroll University in the fall to study software engineering, was chosen because of his commitment to community. Not only is he a dedicated student, he also mentors freshman in Park’s Link program, works with individuals with developmental disabilities and spends afternoons as an after-school supervisor at one of the RUSD elementary schools.
