Mayor David Bennett is pleased to announce that 160 Hilton Head Island Middle School and High School students will receive the Mayor’s Youth Volunteer Service Award for completing at least fifty hours of community service in a calendar year.  42 of the 160 students will be awarded the Mayor’s Call to Service Award for completing more than 150 hours of community service.

Mayor Bennett will be presenting each student a service award at a special ceremony on Monday, May 9, 2016 at 4:00 p.m. at the Sonesta Resort, 130 Shipyard Drive, Shipyard Plantation, Hilton Head Island. The award ceremony is a way for Mayor Bennett to thank and honor these students who, by their demonstrated commitment and example, inspire others to engage in volunteer service and who have given their valuable time and effort into making a difference in our community.
