Brian Swiggum Recognized by National Volunteer Organization
Senior Brian Swiggum has been named one of the top runners-up in The 2012 Prudential Spirit of Community Awards in Wisconsin. As a result, Brian will receive an engraved bronze Distinguished Finalist medallion and he also is qualified for the President's Volunteer Service Award. In addition, to being an excellent student Brian has raised nearly $1,000 and collected 5,000 personal items to donate to the poverty-stricken children in Bogota, Columbia through the organization Children's Vision International. Brian began making and placing donation cans in local stores in 2010 and had created partnerships with Walmart and Dollar General to collect needed items. This is a great honor for Brian, for our school, and for our community.
