Local High Schoolers Received President’s Volunteer Service Gold Award
October 1, 2010
The President's Council on Service and Civic Participation was established in 2003 to recognize the valuable contributions volunteers are making in our communities and to encourage more people to serve. The Council created the President’s Volunteer Service Award program as a way to thank and honor Americans who, by their demonstrated commitment and example, inspire others to engage in volunteer service.
Recently, three Reading Girl Scouts who are all freshman at Reading Memorial High School were recognized by the President’s Council for their community service efforts. Kasey Cook, Mary Kate Kelley and Grace Stroman all received the Gold Award in recognition of more than 100 hours of community service in the past twelve months. The young ladies could be found in so many different venues around Reading as they earned the award. You might have seen them tending for an Adopt an Island, tutoring at the middle school, helping to host the Teacher Appreciation Breakfast, Running the Hoops for Heart Program, working at their churches, volunteering at the library, helping the Rotary Club, or volunteering as part of Reading Girl Scouts, to name a few.
The scouts were honored at a ceremony during a recent Girl Scout event held in Plymouth, MA. Younger scouts from Reading were honored to be able to make the presentations of the Gold Awards to the older scouts. In the upcoming twelve months, Cook, Kelley and Stroman will continue their community service efforts and hope that other youngsters in Reading will join them. Children as young as five years old can earn the award.
According to the President’s Council, recognizing and honoring volunteers sets a standard for service, encourages a sustained commitment to civic participation, and inspires others to make service a central part of their lives. The President’s Volunteer Service Award recognizes individuals, families, and groups that have achieved a certain standard – measured by the number of hours of service over a 12-month period or during their entire lifetime.
