Schools mandating volunteering
Everyone associated with the White County School System wishes to encourage all those interested to volunteer to benefit the youth in our community.
By Emma Caldwell High school is not just preparation for college.
Volunteers are a vital part of student success in White County Schools.
Parents and interested citizens are encouraged to join the school system in the mission to provide every student with a high quality education.
Though my school only requires a minimum of 10 community service hours freshman year, I have continued to volunteer throughout high school.In fact, many students leave high school with no intention of going to college.Some join the military and others already have job prospects to pursue.The life lesson of service is just as important in "the real world" we teenagers so often hear about as that "A" on our last calculus exam.Making community service a requirement ensures students will at least spend the minimum time volunteering in their community.
