Service Awards 


Our First Year Results

The Georgia Commission for Service and Volunteerism instituted the Georgia Student Service Award during the 2011-2012 school year as a pilot project to recognize graduating seniors who make significant contributions to their communities through volunteer service.


The Georgia Commission offered the Georgia Student Service Award to all Georgia high schools and set as a first year benchmark the target of 50 hours of volunteer service per student. Individual schools certified the student hours and submitted the names of the students eligible for the awards.

  • 28 high schools participated
  • 378 Georgia students will receive the award during graduation ceremonies this spring
  • Those students volunteered 49,640 hours of service in their communities
  • Two students, Chrishana Echols of South Atlanta High School and Kaylee Tillery of Tift High School, each volunteered more than 1,200 hours during their high school years.


The Georgia Student Service Award recipients volunteered for activities as wide-ranging as tutoring, working in food banks and canneries, disaster preparation and other traditional forms of community service.
