CHS Senior Anna Gardner Receives President's Volunteer Service Award
Anna Gardner, a senior at Campbellsport High School, has been honored for her exemplary volunteer service with a President's Volunteer Service Award.
The award, which recognizes Americans of all ages who have volunteered significant amounts of their time to serve their communities and their country, was granted by the Prudential Spirit of Community Awards program on behalf of the President's Council on Service and Civic Participation. Campbellsport High School nominated Anna for national honors this fall in recognition of her volunteer service.
"I sincerely hope that my contributions around Campbellsport inspire others to find different ways to contribute to our school. I am especially proud of the work we did surrounding the Teddy Bear drive for the Campbellsport Fire Department. Seeing the impact that this activity had on the students and the community was one of my most cherished moments," Anna said.
"Anna's contributions around Campbellsport High School are numerous. She selflessly has given up her time to better not only our dances and school sponsored activities, but also our school culture as a whole. Her impact on our school and community will be felt for years to come. She is definitely worthy of this prestigious award," said Todd Hencsik, Campbellsport Middle-High School principal.
The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards, sponsored by Prudential Financial in partnership with the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), recognizes middle level and high school students across America for outstanding volunteer service.
"The recipients of these awards demonstrate that young people across America are making remarkable contributions to the health and vitality of their communities," said John Strangfeld, chairman and CEO of Prudential Financial. "By recognizing these students and placing a spotlight on their volunteer activities, we hope to motivate others to consider how they can also contribute to their community."

The brief ceremony was led by Dan Tinsley, president of Salute the Troops, a retired sergeant, as well as a Mayville High School graduate.
