Presidential Volunteer Service Awards

MarineParents.com has over 70 volunteers who have already achieved awards for volunteer service hours this calendar year through the President's Volunteer Service program (scroll below to read more about the program). Our award recipients have worked anywhere from 100 to 500 hours individually through March 31 this year to earn this prestigious award.

Hours are measured over a 12-month period and awards are designated based on cumulative hours. The awards are offered at multiple levels and are designed to recognize each milestone of a volunteer’s service achievement. Levels include bronze, silver, gold and the highest honor, the President's Lifetime Achievement Award for those who contribute more than 4,000 hours of service in their lifetime.

First, we want to congratulate Melissa Schultz on earning the President’s Lifetime Achievement Award! This required a minimum of 4,000 hours (the equivalent of two years of full-time work) over the course of her life. Congratulations Melissa!

Next, we would like to congratulate Teresa Meadows on earning Gold this year! To earn Gold, Teresa was required to contribute a minimum of 500 hours over the course of a year. She contributed 651.9 hours! Congratulations Teresa!

We have 11 volunteers that deserve congratulations on earning Silver so far this year! To earn Silver, they had to contribute a minimum of 250 hours over the course of a year. These volunteers (with their hours) are Lori Ballard (474.25), Sherri Trinler (388.94), Lynn Humphries (350.01), Allison Wadowski (306.94), Sharon Baijense (300.64), Joan Mobley (289.46), Kimberly Raley (279.19), Emily Hunt (275.99), David Mohr (255.23), Joyce Willcox (251.77), and Nicole Edmundson (251.05). Congratulations to each of you!

Finally, we have 62 volunteers who earned bronze! To earn bronze, they had to contribute a minimum of 100 hours over the course of a year. Congratulations to each of you!

Throughout the year, we will continue to total our volunteers’ service hours so we can move them up to the next level of awards. We want to congratulate each of you on the achievements you have earned! Your dedication to this organization is amazing and we’re thrilled that your hard work will be recognized.

The President’s Volunteer Service Award recognizes, celebrates, and holds up as role models Americans making a positive impact as engaged and deeply committed volunteers. The Award enables community organizations to amplify their gratitude by joining with the President of the United States to thank their most dedicated volunteers.

In 2003, the President's Council on Service and Civic Participation launched the President's Volunteer Service Award to recognize the importance of volunteers to America's strength and national identity, and furthermore, to honor the deeply invested volunteers whose service is multiplied through the inspiration they give others.
