Dalton Bettendorf, 18, of Chillicothe has been honored for his exemplary volunteer service with a President’s Volunteer Service Award.
The award, which recognizes Americans of all ages who have volunteered significant amounts of their time to serve their communities and their country, was presented by The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards program on behalf of President Barack Obama. Dalton participated in the Spirit of Community Program this year as a representative of Chillicothe High School in Chillicothe where he is a member of the Key Club, National Honor Society, the Student Leader peer mentor program, soccer, and track.
Dalton earned his award by participating in countless hours of community service through academically and athletically based programs.
“As an educator, Dalton is the type of student and person you hope to have in your school. He is not only talented but also willing to share those talents with others to make them or their situation better. I am proud that this young man is a Chillicothe Cavalier. He deserves any and all honors given to him” said Chillicothe High School Principal Jeff Fisher.
Dalton remarked, “the biggest reward is being able to give back to the community. I love helping out where ever I can and being a part of something bigger than myself.”
Sponsored by Prudential Financial in Partnership with the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards program recognizes young people across America for outstanding community service activities. More than 370,000 young people across America have been considered for these awards since the program began in 1995.
“The recipients of these awards vividly demonstrated that young people across America are making remarkable contributions to the health and vitality of their communities,” said John R. Strangfeld, chairman and CEO of Prudential Financial. “In recognizing these students and placing a spotlight on their volunteer service activities, we hope to motivate others to consider how they can also contribute to their community.”
“Demonstrating civic responsibility through community volunteerism is an important part of life,” said NASSP Executive Director JoAnn Bartolettie. “These Honorees practice a lesson we hope all young people, as well as adults will emulate.”
Program applications were distributed last September through all public and private middle level and high schools, Girl Scout councils, country 4-H organizations, American Red Cross chapters, YMCA’s, and affiliates of HandsOn Network. After Local Honorees were names, state-level judges selected State Honorees, Distinguished Finalists and Certificate of Excellence recipients. Volunteer activities were judged on criteria such as personal initiative, creativity, effort, impact, and personal growth.
NASSP, based in Reston, Va, is the preeminent organization of and national voice for middle level and high school principals, assistant principals and aspiring school leaders from across the United States and more than 45 countries around the world. Prudential Financial, based in Newark, N.J., provides more than 50 million individual and institutional customers worldwide with the life insurance, annuities, retirement-related services, mutual funds, investment management, and real estate services. Congratulations Dalton!
