For “exemplary volunteer service,” Fauquier High School senior Kaleb Scott has received a President’s Volunteer Service Award.

On behalf of President Barack Obama, The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards program granted the award, which recognizes Americans of all ages who have volunteered significant time to serve their communities and country.

A junior volunteer at Fauquier Hospital, Kaleb has logged a total of 235 hours.

Sponsored by Prudential Financial and the National Association of Secondary School Principals, the award recognizes middle and high school students across America.

“Demonstrating civic responsibility through volunteerism is an important part of life,” NASSP Executive Director JoAnn Bartoletti said. “These honorees practice a lesson we hope all young people, as well as adults, will emulate.”

The award criteria include personal initiative, creativity, effort, impact and personal growth.

Kaleb said he does the majority of his volunteerism during the summer and plans to log in an additional 45 hours at Fauquier Hospital after graduation this year.

Congratulations! I have not met you, however, just seeing the
type of person you are today, I can only hope your life will
be filled with special and wonderful gifts, not necessarily,
monetary; however, money helps! Good Luck in all your endeavors!

Outstanding honor for Kaleb. Congratulations to him. It's good to see proof that there are many outstanding young adults doing good things as we typically only hear about illegal drugs, delinquency, and crime. It's also noteworthy that the award is on behalf of President Obama. Thank you, Mr. President, for recognizing outstanding citizens like Kaleb.
