IHM Student Receives Presidential Award for Community Service Hours
Nancy Ramos, an eighth-grader, won the award for her 281 hours of community service in just one year.
Nancy Ramos, an eighth grade student at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic School, was awarded the President's Volunteer Service Gold Award for 281 hours of community service in a single year.
The President's Council on Service and Civic Participation 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. This award is tiered based on an individual’s age and amount of service.
The most common award is the Bronze Award, followed by the Silver Award, and on occasion the Gold Award is issued. Middle school students at IHM Catholic School are required to serve a minimum of 8-24 hours per year, depending on grade level, but Miss Ramos far exceeded these requirements offering her time to a wide variety of community service projects. The Gold Level Award is the highest single year award presented by the Council.
