I'd like to introduce you to the Honorees from Georgia for The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards. The program also chooses anywhere from 2 to 10 runners up in each state. They are named Distinguished Finalists and receive a bronze medallion. I will be listing them as well underneath the Honorees.
I will give a short description of what the Honoree has been nominated for and then you can click on their name to find out more!
The two state Honorees are:
Rashad is in eighth grade. He uses his "Lil Chef" cookie business to pay for other students to go on school field trips, take part in 4-H and Boys and Girls Club activities, which they otherwise wouldn't be able to afford. He also donates to the Boys and Girls Club library and other organizations.
Kenneth is a senior. He speaks to student groups about diabetes and raises money for a cure. He also volunteers as a counselor at a summer camp for children with diabetes, showing them how to eat healthy and help building their self esteem.
The Distinguished Finalists are:
Sa Rang Lee-aiding the disadvantaged
Manasa Bhatta-encouraging reading and literacy
Charles Orgbon-protecting the environment
Morgan Bowen-supporting american servicemen and women
Charlotte McCauley-supporting american servicemen and women
Kathryn Engelmaier-teaching, tutoring and mentoring other young people
Lets hear it for these amazing kids!
