Kayla Abramowitz earns national award for community service impact.

May 21, 2019 – William T. Dwyer High School is delighted to announce student Kayla Abramowitz is being recognized by the United Nations Association–USA and InnerView Technologies in the 2018 - 2019 National Community Service Awards!  The Award program has been designed to connect student community service activities and commitment to the 17 UN Global Goals to Transform Our World.

“The UN Global Goals bring awareness, action, and measurement to the toughest challenges the world faces and each objective requires engaged individuals to collaborate and invest both minds and hearts to solve these critical issues.  Each initiative and solution has people at the epicenter of the change necessary to create the world we all desire” says Anna Mahalak, Youth Engagement Manager of the United Nations Association – USA.  “We are thrilled that educators are including community service engagement in the educational experience and culture of their school.”

A key artifact students gain through this program is the development of a digital service resume for use in job and college applications to demonstrate personal commitment, 21st century skills, and key areas of interest.   The three tier award program recognizes a range of student achievement: Merit for 20 hours, Honor for 40 hours and Ambassador for 100 hours of service this school year. 

Kayla Abramowitz has earned the Merit Award and invested the most effort and impact for Global Goal 3 - Good Health & Well-Being.
