Freshman Rewarded for Their Service

To graduate from high school, all students need 20 community service hours.  This week, Dr. Weigel rewarded freshmen who earned their hours before the end of the year.

Students with 5 to 10 hours received Skittles, students got Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups for having between 10 and 75 hours, and those who gained more than 75 hours received a $15  gift card to Chick-Fil-A and a Heresy’s chocolate bar.

“I like that I’m able to work in my community and help with the kids at Central Cove,” said freshman Scott Daris. “It gives me an opportunity to do good in the community, although it’s somewhat difficult to get them [community service hours] when I have a lot of work to do.”

This is one of the many rewards the freshmen class has been given. This reward system, according to Dr. Weigel, is made to encourage students to get their hours in early; therefore, they will not have to scramble for hours senior year and can focus on obtaining hours to impress universities and scholarship programs, rather than for graduation.
