By participating in the Immaculate Heart Academy Christian Service Program, students apply their Catholic Christian values by practicing them in projects that expand the students’ awareness of God, others, and themselves. To recognize the efforts of numerous community members who give back in so many ways, we hold an annual Service Awards Assembly. The 2019 Service Awards were held Wednesday, May 8.
This year, our students dedicated 45,736 total service hours, the most in recorded history. Seniors gave 3.5x their required service hours and 30,605 hours total in their four years at IHA. Our girls are required to do an average of 18 hours per year, and, this year, we averaged 67.9.
We honored 124 students for achieving the President’s Volunteer Service Award at the Bronze level (100-174 hours per year), Silver level (175-249 hours per year), and Gold level (250 and more hours per year). Congratulations to the top three service hour earners: Gianna Niece’21 (714), Ashley Brombauer’21 (803), and Regina Garvey’19 (846). Photos courtesy of Mike Hamlett Photography.
