He will receive a $1,000 college scholarship and invitation to be recognized at the Carson Scholars Fund Annual Banquet on May 5, 2019.
Rehman already accomplished by his junior year the difficult academic, athletic, community service and personal development goals and requirements for earning the US Congressional Gold Medal Award. Congressman Pete Olson honored him with his medal and certificate.
