Do you believe you are making a difference through volunteering in your community? If so, you might want to apply for the Prudential Spirit of Community Award. One WEMCHS student will be recognized as a Local Honoree at the school level then their name is submitted to enter the state competition. State Honorees who are selected receive $1,000, an engraved medallion and an all-expense paid trip with a parent/guardian to Washington D.C. in May. National Honorees are selected from the state winners and then receive an additional $5,000 for themselves, $5,000 for the charity of their choice, plus an engraved gold medallion and crystal trophy. All high school students who have engaged in a volunteer activity that occurred in part after Sept. 2015 are eligible to apply. See Mrs. Loury for application details.
