Two Seniors Give Nearly 3,000 Hours of Service

Summit Rotary recognized two seniors for the
most service-learning hours in the 2015 class

"Greensboro, N.C. – Two GCS students gave almost 3,000 hours of service to their community over the past four years. Dante Alford, Andrews High, and Nashaj Warren, Smith High, were recently recognized by the Summit Rotary for their outstanding service.

Alford gave 1,485 hours over the last four years volunteering at local businesses such as High Manor, Habitat for Humanity and the Salvation Army. He is also a member of Andrews High’s ‘Red Smoove’ Drumline which works to improve the community with their music.

Warren earned most of her 1,460 hours working with the nonprofit Calvary Kids Daycare. She assisted daycare providers and worked with children ranging in ages from infant to 11 years old.

GCS students have volunteered more than one million hours serving the community since 2011, providing an economic impact of about $21 million to the local community. A record 1,137 seniors received awards for their dedication and service to the community. Of those, more than half (599) will receive Service-Learning Diplomas for giving 250 hours or more of service, and 538 will receive Service-Learning Exemplary Awards for at least 100 hours of service.

Students earning diplomas will be eligible to win a car at our third-annual Cool to Serve event, happening Sunday, June 28, at the High Point Theatre."
