Presidential Volunteer Service Award Recipient
The Presidential Volunteer Service Award is a nationally recognized award given to outstanding individuals who dedicate considerable time over the course of a year to help their communities.
Rising 10th grader Kendall White is the first Breck recipient to receive this award. She spent over 100 hours volunteering in many different ways and has qualified for the Gold Presidential Volunteer Service Award. Congratulations to Kendall for all her contributions to the greater community this year AND for being our school’s inaugural recipient!
