Greenwood Student Recognized for Community Service

Greenwood Student

 

 

Greenwood High School student, Emily Morgan, has been named a Distinguished Finalist in the 2020 The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards. The nationwide program honors young people for outstanding acts of volunteerism. 
The program judges also recognized four other Kentucky students as Distinguished Finalists for their impressive community service activities.

 

Emily Morgan a senior at Greenwood High School, founded and runs “Every 98 Seconds,” a nonprofit organization that collects and donates art supplies for children in the community who have experienced trauma; she spreads awareness of the importance of art therapy and has raised nearly $3,000 and more than 200 art supplies. Emily was motivated to start the organization by the proven benefits of art therapy for kids, and to help lift the stigma around discussing child abuse.

 

The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards represents the United States’ largest youth recognition program based solely on volunteer service. All public and private middle level and high schools in the country, as well as all Girl Scout councils, county 4-H organizations, American Red Cross chapters, YMCAs and Points of Light Global Network members, were eligible to select a student or member for a local Prudential Spirit of Community Award. These Local Honorees were then reviewed by an independent judging panel, which selected State Honorees and Distinguished Finalists based on criteria including personal initiative, effort, impact and personal growth. 
 

 Since the program began in 1995, more than 130,000 young volunteers have been honored at the local, state and national level. The program also is conducted by Prudential subsidiaries in Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Ireland, India, China and Brazil. In addition to granting its own awards, The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards program also distributes President’s Volunteer Service Awards to qualifying Local Honorees.
