The Silver Garland Awards is a program to recognize outstanding Polk Country High School Seniors in 11 categories Twenty-five school can nominate students. The award is for service to school and community. It is not a talent search nor scholastic competition. It’s purpose is to alert young people to their future responsibilities as community leaders by recognizing the dedicated students who selflessly serve others. In all of Polk County there were only 193 nominees. Caleb was one of 20 students in the area of Science.
And while he didn’t win we are very proud of him for being one of the nominees. I am also proud of the fact that he had such a great attitude even when he didn’t win. Most of his service has been through his involvement with Camp Fire and I want to give a shout out to all they have done to help my son grown into such a wonderful young man.
It was very inspiring to see such a wonderful group of young people who have gone beyond the basic requirements to truly serve.
