Community Awareness

Description of Program: The program encourages and rewards students for making significant contributions to their community. Points are earned for the Service Honor Cord throughout High School by contributing time and energy to organizations such as church, Easter Seals, and United Way agencies. Projects such as volunteering at senior centers, hospitals, working on a telethon, tutoring, etc., as long as there is no pay involved, could be a volunteer activity.

Criteria/Eligibility Requirements: The principal's office will coordinate the documentation of points earned toward the Service Honor Cord. Each student will submit a signed letter within 10 days of completion of the project. The service letter must be signed by the supervisor of the project and will indicate individual student hours volunteered to this effort. The office will maintain a running total of student volunteer hours. National Honor Society students may earn these cords by volunteering hours above and beyond those needed for N.H.S.

120 TOTAL hours needed for white service cord at Graduation. Service hours are not mandatory for graduation.
