Carmel Middle students earn President's Volunteer Service Awards

Six members of Carmel Middle's National Junior Honor Society will receive a President's Volunteer Service Award.

The President's Council on Service and Civic Participation established the national awards in 2003, according to the award's website.

Casey Watkins will receive the gold award for 100 hours of service, and Barbara Euripides, Erin Furney, Andrew Gardner, Ashley Grice and Lindsey Noonan will receive the bronze award for completing 50 to 74 hours of service.

Kym Furney, the school's leadership team chairwoman (and Erin's mother), said the six students who will be recognized are honor roll students who are active in athletic and academic teams.

Overall, 32 of the school's National Junior Honor Society members, including the six, completed at least 25 hours of community service in the past year, she said.
