Campbellsport High School Senior Anna Gardner Receives President's Volunteer Service Award

               Anna Gardner, a senior at Campbellsport High School, has been honored for her exemplary volunteer service with a President’s Volunteer Service Award. 

                The award, which recognizes Americans of all ages who have volunteered significant amounts of their time to serve their communities and their country, was granted by The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards program on behalf of the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation. Campbellsport High School nominated Anna for national honors this fall in recognition of her volunteer service.

                “I sincerely hope that my contributions around Campbellsport inspire others to find different ways to contribute to our school.  I am especially proud of the work we did surrounding the Teddy Bear drive for the Campbellsport Fire Department.  Seeing the impact that this activity had on the students and the community was one of my most cherished moments,” said Anna Gardner.

                “Anna’s contributions around Campbellsport High School are numerous.  She selflessly has given up her time to better not only our dances and school sponsored activities, but also our school culture as a whole.  Her impact on our school and community will be felt for years to come.  She is definitely worthy of this prestigious award,” said Todd Hencsik, Campbellsport Middle-High School Principal.

                The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards, sponsored by Prudential Financial in partnership with the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), recognizes middle level and high school students across America for outstanding volunteer service.

     “The recipients of these awards demonstrate that young people across America are making remarkable contributions to the health and vitality of their communities,” said John Strangfeld, chairman and CEO of Prudential Financial.  “By recognizing these students and placing a spotlight on their volunteer activities, we hope to motivate others to consider how they can also contribute to their community.”

                "Demonstrating civic responsibility through volunteerism is an important part of life," said NASSP Executive Director JoAnn Bartoletti.  "These honorees practice a lesson we hope all young people, as well as adults, will emulate."

                Prudential Spirit of Community Award applications were distributed nationwide last September through middle level and high schools, Girl Scout councils, county 4-H organizations, American Red Cross chapters, YMCAs and HandsOn Network affiliates.  These schools and officially-designated local organizations nominated Local Honorees, whose applications were advanced for state-level judging. In addition to granting President’s Volunteer Service Awards on behalf of the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation, The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards selected State Honorees, Distinguished Finalists and Certificate of Excellence recipients. Volunteer activities were judged on criteria including personal initiative, creativity, effort, impact and personal growth.

Campbellsport High School Receives Prestigious W!SE Blue Star School Recognition

Campbellsport High School received the Working in Support of Education (W!SE) Blue Star School recognition for the 2015-16 school year.  Each of students in our Personal Finance course took the W!SE Financial Literacy certification test last year.  To be recognized as a Blue Star School, 75% or higher of the students must pass the test and have either a majority of students on a given grade level take the test or have the students who took the test achieve an average of 80% or higher.  This is no small feat, as Campbellsport was one of only nine schools in Wisconsin to achieve Blue Star School status.

"I am extremely proud of our students who took the test and received the certification,” states Ms. Katie Peterson, Campbellsport Business Education teacher.   “Financial literacy is a very important skill for everyone to have.  This news gives me the confidence that CHS graduates are leaving high school financially literate and will continue to make smart financial decisions as they move forward beyond high school."

Campbellsport High School would like to congratulate the students who took the W!SE Financial Literacy certification test.   We would also like to recognize the teachers in our Business Education Department for giving these students the vital knowledge about personal finance and the tools they need to become financially capable young adults.
