Lacey Cabral was named the Old Colony Regional Vocational Technical High School District volunteer of the year in the 2011 Prudential Spirit of Community Awards program. Lacey was recognized for her volunteer work as an office assistant to her Church Director.
Sponsored by Prudential Financial and the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), the awards recognize outstanding community service by young Americans. Ms. Cabral is now eligible for the Massachusetts youth volunteer of the year awards.
Two State Honorees, one middle level and one high school student, will be named in February. Each will receive a $1,000 award, a silver medallion, and a trip to Washington, D.C. for recognition ceremonies with a parent or guardian next May.
At the Washington event, ten National Honorees will be named by a distinguished national selection committee, and each will receive an additional $5,000 grant from the Prudential Foundation for a nonprofit, charitable organization of his or her choice.
The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards are supported by Girl Scouts of the USA, National 4-H Council, American Red Cross, YMCA of the USA, Hands On Network(generated by the Points of Light Institute) and many other national youth, service and education organizations.
