Baldwin High School GIVES recognized nearly 30 students for their hours of dedicated volunteerism to school and community organizations during a honors ceremony Tuesday.

NJROTC kicked off the ceremony with a Pledge of Allegiance before student Jacquetta Russell recited a poem. Georgia College GIVE Center Director Kendall Stiles gave a brief history of how the GIVE Center was established in 1997 followed by the inspiring words of keynote speaker Paul Grigsby.

Baldwin GIVES Coordinator Wilhelmina Wade awarded students with a certificate for their hours of accomplishments. Communities In Schools (CIS) of Milledgeville-Baldwin County Executive Director Sandy Baxter also awarded graduating seniors with a honor’s cord and CIS pin.

As the second satellite center for the Georgia College GIVE, high school students have logged more than 3,000 hours since opening an office at the Baldwin College & Career Academy in August 2012.
