49 Grayson County Middle School students have been recognized by Lions Club International for the volunteer work they do in their community.
The Lions Young Leaders in Service Awards recognize young people for their community service within a 12-month period. Recipients received an award certificate and a congratulatory letter from the president of Lions Clubs International.
The awards fulfill two important Lions commitments: To improve the civic, cultural, social, and moral welfare of the community, and to help young people become responsible adult citizens and community leaders.
“This award goes hand in hand with the middle school objective of preparing our students to be college and career ready,” said GCMS Counselor Nancy Sims. “We are delighted to partner with the Lions Club to recognize the community service of our students. Young people who volunteer become adults who serve.”
10 sixth graders, 15 seventh graders, and 24 eighth graders received the award.
