Andrew students honored for 10,587 volunteer hours!

10,587 volunteer hours!

 That is how many hours these students have earned since their freshman year at Andrew High School. There were 38 students from Andrew (freshmen through senior year) who were recently awarded the 26th Annual Cook County Sheriff’s Youth Service Medal of Honor Award. The ceremony was held in December at the UIC Forum in Chicago. 

The program recognizes Cook County students who have, in one year, volunteered 100 or more hours beyond those required for graduation. These students are holding up cards showing how many hours they have volunteered during their time as a T-Bolt.

Way to go Dakota! I had the extreme pleasure of working with Dakota McDonnell while performing community service at Tinley Court. He is the most caring and compassionate teen I have ever met!!
