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. Steve participated in the Spirit of Community program this year as a representative of Notre Dame High School, in Fairfield, where he is a student.

Steve earned his award by volunteering for numerous Notre Dame service programs, as well as serving as a summer math tutor at St. Andrew School, volunteering at the Jewish Home for the Elderly and as a junior counselor at the St. Patrick’s Church Bible Camp,” said Notre Dame Principal Christopher Cipriano. “He is certainly a very worthy recipient of this award, and our entire school community shares its congratulations.”

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.
