Community Service Hours for Seniors


Martha Lopez, Staff Reporter

There has been word going around that seniors now have to do community service hours in order to graduate. The best bet is that it is true. Seniors graduating in 2015, will have to do 10 hours of community service. Although a lot of the details about  how this requirement will be carried out are still in the works, the 2015 graduating class will be able to learn about the process and opportunities later on in the year. The school wants the students to do community service hours because they have noticed how outside volunteer work has helped the students develop more as a person and it is a great way to gain work experience, according to Mrs. Zook, the Career Counselor.  The college center, more specifically Mrs. Zook, counselors, and SLC lead teachers are all a great resource to find out more about this new graduation requirement.
