TRUSSVILLE — Emma Brown is out to make a difference.
The Trussville teen has been recognized as The President’s Service Award winner — an honor presented to individuals whose service positively impacts their community and inspires those around them to take action.
Brown, a junior at John Carroll Catholic High School, earned the Bronze, Silver and Gold Service Awards; meaning she completed 250-plus hours of service benefiting her community. According to Brown, her time serving dinner at The Firehouse Shelter was one of her most rewarding volunteer opportunities, and, as a future teacher, she also enjoyed assisting at the Cathedral Church of the Advent’s Vacation Bible School.
According to the program’s website, “The PVSA has continued under each administration, honoring the volunteers who are using their time and talents to solve some of the toughest challenges facing our nation.”
