The President’s Volunteer Service Award is a high honor handed out to students who are dedicated to serving their community.

Also known as PVSA, this award celebrates the impact that we can all make in bettering our communities and our world. “Even though you may not seek recognition, your example can deliver a powerful message that encourages others to take action,” says the PVSA website.

GivingPoint is lucky to be a Certifying Organization, which gives us the ability to recognize local students who qualify and exemplify the PVSA standards. To learn more about the award, you can read about it on our website or on the PVSA site.

This year, GivingPoint is excited to hand out 49 awards to local students for their service from January – December 2018. We would like to take a moment and recognize the hard work and dedication of the following students:
