For “exemplary volunteer service” Fauquier High School senior Kaleb Scott has been honored with a President’s Volunteer Service Award.
On behalf of President Barack Obama, The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards program granted the award, which recognizes Americans of all ages who have volunteered significant amounts of their time to serve their communities and country. Kaleb is a junior volunteer at Fauquier Hospital, logging in a total of 235 hours.
Sponsored by Prudential Financial and the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), the award recognizes middle and high school students across America.
“Demonstrating civic responsibility through volunteerism is an important part of life,” said NASSP Executive Director JoAnn Bartoletti. “These honorees practice a lesson we hope all young people, as well as adults, will emulate.”
Kaleb’s volunteer activities were judged on criteria including personal initiative, creativity, effort, impact and personal growth. He said he does the majority of his volunteerism during the summer, and he plans to log in an additional 45 hours at Fauquier Hospital this summer.
