Jared Downing, of Collingswood, NJ, and a sophomore at Manor College has been named the 2022 Mother Josaphat Medal Award Recipient.

The Mother Josaphat Medal is a student award presented to a Manor College student who exhibited a responsible lifestyle evidenced through reverence, respect, and service. The medal is the highest honor for a student at the college.

Downing, a sophomore studying Veterinary Technology, is known around campus as a consistent, positive, problem-solving-focused individual who has maintained an enthusiastic attitude through these difficult last two years.

“Jared is a natural leader, but is extremely respectful of other students, faculty, and staff at Manor College,” Dr. Beverly Bisaccia, Education Coordinator for the Veterinary Technology program at Manor College said. “He treats all of his classmates, whether they are in the same year as him or a freshman, with respect and is willing to teach and guide them when they are struggling.”

In his time away from the college, Downing volunteered at Last Chance Ranch in Quakertown, a facility that rescues, rehabilitates, and rehomes neglected animals with help from volunteers and the public.

“It feels so good to be acknowledged for my hard work by the institution that has made working hard such a pleasure,” Jared Downing said. “I very proudly wear this medal and hold my head high knowing that this is one of many great moments at Manor because of the tools they have given me.”
