LFHS will keep track of a student’s hours for their entire high school career and students can print out a record from x2VOL whenever it is needed. It is important to record service hours because the Student Services Office frequently refers to the volunteer records of students when asked to suggest candidates for leadership seminars, conferences, scholarships, and national and local service awards.
A Student Service Recognition Night ceremony is held annually in April. One of the awards that will be presented at this ceremony is the President’s Volunteer Service Award, which is a nationally recognized service award sponsored through the White House and the Points of Light Foundation. This award is based solely on the number of service hours completed by a student within a year’s time. Our year runs each year from March 2 through March 1 of the following year. There are two different age categories and three levels of recognition:
Hours by Award
Young Adults (16-25)
Only students who have recorded their hours on x2VOl in Naviance will be eligible to receive one of these awards. Students should record their volunteer hours by the March deadline.
