Forty-six students have earned the President’s Volunteer Service Award (PVSA) in recognition of the service hours they have completed this school year.
The PVSA is an initiative of the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) and is administered by Points of Light. According to their website, “Through a shared mission of inspiring more to answer the call to service, the President's Volunteer Service Award celebrates the impact we can all make in bettering our communities and our world.” Established in 2003, the award recognizes those who have achieved the required number of hours of service over a 12-month time period or cumulative hours over the course of a lifetime.
Bishop’s students participate in the Young Adult category in which the required number of hours for the Bronze Award are 100-174 hours; Silver Award winners have completed 175-249 hours; and the Gold Award honors those students who have documented 250 or more hours.
The Bishop’s School is an independent, coeducational college-preparatory day school for students in grades six through twelve who live throughout San Diego County. Founded in 1909, the School is affiliated with the Episcopal church.
