Silver Cord Program

HS Silver Cord Service Commendation

Volunteer work presents a great opportunity for students to prepare for their future, as well as to improve the Lynnville-Sully Community School District and surrounding areas. One of the most selfless acts anyone can do is donate their time and talents. Commitment to volunteer work shows that one is willing to work for something without monetary compensation. Students who are busy but still make time to volunteer on evenings or weekends show outstanding character and resolve to make a difference. Committing to a volunteer position shows responsibility. With each new volunteer activity, one gains new skills. Through volunteer work high school students boost socializing skills and awareness of local organizations and social issues. Networks with others are established that may offer future contacts for reference letters, scholarships, and employment opportunities.

Graduating seniors meeting the requirements of the Silver Cord Service Commendation will be recognized at Senior Awards Night with a Silver Cord. Graduates will wear Silver Cords at Commencement and recognition will be noted in the commencement program. Silver Cord Service Commendation recognition at graduation is a celebration of approval and praise, an award for those who have achieved, and encouragement for future graduates.
