This spring, I was so excited to be awarded the Gold Level Presidentís Volunteer Service Award for completing over 250 volunteer service hours this year! This is one of my greatest accomplishments not only because it shows me that I really can do something to make a difference, but also because I had a toe-to-knee cast on my right leg during four of the months that I spent earning the award as well as having foot surgery.

My new goal is to continue to earn the Presidentís Volunteer Service Award at the Gold Level each year until I am at least 25!
Recipients are awarded:
