In 2003, the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation founded the President’s Volunteer Service Award to recognize the important role of volunteers in America’s strength and national identity. This award honors individuals whose service positively impacts communities in every corner of the nation and inspires those around them to take action, too.
The program has continued under each administration, honoring the volunteers who are using their time and talents to solve some of the toughest challenges facing our nation.
Casady School is proud to have a robust list of students who have earned distinction from this program.
