Discus Award Winner
12th Grade, OK
I have donated my time to my community in many ways. I am involved in my city’s Emergency Management program which requires us to do things for the city. Being involved in this I have gotten the chance to go around my city and take damage assessments from when it has stormed or flooded in my home town. I have gotten the chance to see how helping my community not only helps the people and earth, but how it helps me. Seeing how helping they people in my community affects them makes me feel better about myself and them. Being involved in such things I have become more involved in my community and have joined my community’s storm spotter program. We go out and watch the storms if they become more severe we radio in to our Emergency Management director.
