Two Southern Arizona teens were honored for their leadership and service in the community.

Congresswoman Martha McSally recognized Macy Maine and Hannah Mason on the house floor this week.

The girls recently received the "Brilliant, Beautiful, and Bold Role Model Award" from the "Girls Rule" foundation. 

KGUN 9 spoke with Hannah Mason after she received the award for taking care of her family after her father was killed and sister seriously injured in a car crash.

"With the process of losing my dad and having Skylar be so injured and going through her medical process, really it was my faith that brought me through it," Mason said. 

Hannah is a senior at Pusch Ridge Christian Academy and one day hopes to attend medical school.
