Supply Elementary School has teamed with the White House to become a certifying organization for the President’s Volunteer Service Award, a national program recognizing Americans who have demonstrated a sustained commitment to volunteer service.
The award was created by President George W. Bush in 2003 to give presidential recognition to individuals, families and groups who meet requirements for volunteer service, measured by the number of service hours performed during 12 months.
Supply Elementary is one of thousands of organizations that have joined forces to deliver the President’s Volunteer Service Award and honor the volunteers who strengthen the nation. As a certifying organization for the award, Supply Elementary is responsible for verifying service hours, nominating potential recipients and delivering the award.
“We are extremely proud to recognize our most outstanding volunteers with the President’s Volunteer Service Award,” said Nancy Bryant, Supply Elementary teacher. “Supply Elementary volunteers are role models in our community, donating their time, energy and talent to bring us closer together as neighbors and a nation.
The award is our way of thanking these volunteers and inspiring everyone in our community to make volunteering a central part of their lives.”
The award is issued by the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation, a group convened by Bush to help foster and encourage a culture of volunteer service and civic participation among Americans.
Chaired by two-time Super Bowl Champion Darrell Green, with former U.S. Senators Bob Dole and John Glenn as honorary co-chairs, the council is composed of leaders in government, media, entertainment, business, education, nonprofit and volunteer service organizations and community volunteering.
