Texas State Technical College hosted their annual Student Leadership Banquet to honor student leaders and clubs for their dedication, community service and leadership throughout the year.
There were seven students who were recognized not only by TSTC, but also by the President of the United States. These students are members of TSTC’s Service Squad and were awarded the President’s Volunteer Service Award. This distinct honor is awarded to those students who have completed more than 100 hours of community services in the span of 12 months. Together, the students completed 1,697 community service hours.
Each recipient received a personalized certificate of achievement, a congratulatory letter on White House letterhead signed by President Barack Obama and a president’s award pin.
“TSTC is a certifying organization of the President’s Volunteer Service Award,” said Adele Clinton, executive director of Student Life. “This award is to recognize the best in the American spirit and to encourage all Americans to improve their communities through volunteer service and civic participation.”
