Porter had to complete a minimum of 100 hours of community service within a 12-month period. All hours were documented and verified by representatives at each agency she served. Porter completed 70 hours to teachers and students in CSISD and 43 with the Brazos Valley Symphony Orchestra through the Symphony Belles program.
She will be honored on stage at the opening ceremony of the National Leadership and Skills Conference, where she will receive the official Presidential Volunteer Service Award pin, a certificate of achievement, and a congratulatory letter signed by the President of the United States.
This award was created by President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation which was established in 2003 to recognize the valuable contributions volunteers are making in our communities and encourage more people to serve. The program continues as an initiative of the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS).
