Murphy Student Recognized for Volunteer Service

Posted by Comm. Dept. in General  |  Comments (11)

     Demarttice Tunstall, of Murphy High School 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.  Demarttice participated in the Spirit of Community program this year as a representative of Murphy High School in Mobile, where he is a student.
     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 310,000 young people across America have been considered for these awards since the program began in 1995.
     "The recipients of these awards vividly demonstrate that young people across America are making remarkable contributions to the health and vitality of their communities,"  said John R. Strangfield, 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."
