Wyatt Booth Receives President's Volunteer Service Award

Hampton High School's Wyatt Booth (12th grader) Receives President's Volunteer Service Award

Hampton, VA - Wyatt Booth, 17, a student at Hampton High School, has been honored for his exemplary voluntary service with a President's Volunteer Service Award.

The award, which recognizes Americans of all ages who have volunteered significant amounts of time to serve their communities and their country, was granted by The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards program on behalf of President Barack Obama.  Hampton High School nominated Wyatt for national honors this fall in recognition of his volunteer service.

In addition to impressive philanthropy and citizenship, Wyatt has an extraordinary academic record.  His academic achievements have earned him multiple school and district honors, including distinction as Valedictorian for the Hampton High School class of 2015.   Selected as an Ambassador for the Sister Cities International Organization, he serves as a liaison to visiting dignitaries and students from Anyang, South Korea, Southampton, England, and Vendome, France.  Wyatt serves on a site council as a Senior Representative to Hampton’s International Baccalaureate, as well as a member of the Superintendent’s Advisory Board for Hampton City Schools.

Wyatt has been an active member of the Boy Scouts of America, through which he has earned his Eagle Scout Award and served as an Eagle Mentor to younger scouts.  He has worked on projects to provide braille for displays at the Virginia Air and Space Museum and the Virginia Living Museum.  For this work, Wyatt was selected as a guest speaker for the National Federation of the Blind’s regional conference.  

The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards, sponsored by Prudential Financial in partnership with the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), recognizes middle level and high school students from across America for outstanding volunteer service.

"The recipients of these awards demonstrate that young people across America are making remarkable contributions to the health and vitality of their communities," said John Strangfeld, chairman and CEO of Prudential Financial.  "By recognizing these students and placing a spotlight on their volunteer activities, we hope to motivate others to consider how they can also contribute to their community."

"Demonstrating civic responsibility through volunteerism is an important part of life," said NASSP Executive Director JoAnn Bartoletti.  "These honorees practice a lesson we hope all young people, as well as adults, will emulate."  

Prudential Spirit of Community Award applications were distributed nationwide last September through middle level and high schools, Girl Scout councils, county 4-H organizations, American Red Cross chapters, YMCAs and HandsOn Network affiliates.  These schools and officially designated local organizations nominated Local Honorees, whose applications were advanced for state-level judging.  In addition to granting President's Volunteer Service Awards on behalf of President Barack Obama, The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards selected State Honorees, Distinguished Finalists and Certificates of Excellence recipients.  Volunteer activities were judged on criteria including personal initiative, creativity, effort, impact and personal growth.

Hampton High School and Hampton City Schools are extremely proud of Wyatt’s commitment to his academics, his school and his community. As his Principal, Tiffany Hardy commended, “Wyatt leads by inspiration!  His energy and desire to help others is contagious.” 

The National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) is the leading organization of and voice for middle level and high school principals, assistant principals and school leaders from across the United States and 35 countries around the world.  The association connects and engages school leaders through advocacy, research, education, and student programs.  NASSP advocates on behalf of all school leaders to ensure the success of each student and strengths school leadership practices through the design and delivery of high quality professional learning experiences.  Reflecting its long-standing commitment to student leadership development, NASSP administers the National Honor Society, National Junior Honor Society, National Elementary Honor Society, and National Association of Student Councils.  For more information about NASSP, located in Reston, VA, visit www.nassp.org.
