61 Shorecrest students honored by Gift of Giving Foundation & President's Volunteer Service

Wednesday, November 2, 2016

With more than 11,000 hours of community service reaching from Shoreline and Lake Forest Park to locations around the world, 61 Shorecrest High School students and recent graduates have been honored by the Gift of Giving Foundation and the national President’s Volunteer Service Award for a commitment of at least 100 hours of service in 2015-16.

The achievement marks a significant milestone for Shorecrest, where more than 500 students have earned this honor over the past 11 years, according to foundation director Ann Corbett.

Community service has been a graduation requirement at Shorecrest for almost 30 years; Shorewood began its community service program 4 years ago. To graduate, all students must volunteer for at least 40 hours during their high school years with a registered non-profit group or event.

 “All of these students deserve both our applause and our thanks,” says Corbett. “So many students go way beyond what’s required, and we like to give a big ‘shout-out’ to the students at both Shorecrest and Shorewood high schools who have completed the extra hours to earn the PVSA.”

The PVSA is an initiative of the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) and is administered by the Points of Light - the largest organization in the world dedicated to volunteer service. Shoreline students have volunteered with several hundred non-profit groups, including local hospitals, schools, social service and animal welfare agencies, and international aid organizations.

“Not only do our students gain new skills and develop new talents, they come to find out that when they help others, they also help themselves,” says Corbett.
