Members of Crescenta Valley civic organizations joined Nancy Stone and CVHS Principal Mike Livingston in presenting Community Service Awards to more than 100 freshmen students this week. The presentations were made in the students' contemporary world affairs class.
Students who completed a minimum of 10 hours of service since the semester started in February earned the certificate. Awards are given at the end of the summer session, and the end of the first and second semesters of the school year. With Wednesday's presentation, about 500 students earned Community Service Awards this school year.
The students earned their hours by working for a variety of non-profit organizations. Several worked on the state assembly campaign of Glendale City Councilman Frank Quintero. Some worked in public libraries, nursing homes, churches and hospitals.
