Chatham High School senior Kate Mirabelli has qualified for consideration for the President's Volunteer Service Award through the Prudential Spirit of Community organization. This award recognizes Americans of all ages who have volunteered significant amounts of their time to serve their communities and their country.

Mirabelli already has been awarded a Certificate of Merit as the local honoree from Chatham High School for the Prudential Spirit of Community Award for her service to her community. It is her record of service that has distinguished her as one of the students who qualifies for consideration for the President’s Volunteer Service Award.

“Kate has definitely made her mark on Chatham High School and its community with her incredible commitment and dedication to helping others,"  Lisa Kool-Behr, Mirabelli's counselor, said. "Her resume speaks to this extraordinary commitment, but to me it truly defines who she is. Kate is extremely driven, and puts 100 percent effort into everything that she does.”

The award was established in 1995 by Prudential Financial in partnership with the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) and is America's largest youth recognition program based solely on volunteer service. This award is meant to recognize a student who has made meaningful contributions to his or her community through exemplary volunteer service.
