Wellesley Service League accepting Centennial Youth Service Award apps

The Wellesley Service League, a non-profit service organization meeting the needs of the Wellesley community, is accepting applications through March 31, 2016 for its annual Centennial Youth Service Award. The applicant should be a Wellesley resident, completing his or her senior year in high school, who has demonstrated unusual dedication and selflessness in a volunteer capacity.  Ideally, this service has been performed in the immediate area.

The Wellesley Service League will name up to two recipients this year.  Each recipient will receive a $1,500 award.  In addition, the honorees’ names will be engraved on a permanent plaque that hangs in the Wellesley Community Center.  To request an application, please email Jennifer Hanlon Wigon at jtwigon@yahoo.com or visit our website to download the application at www.wellesleyserviceleague.org.   The application deadline is: March 31, 2016.

Last year’s recipients were Darrien Tan and Julia Wall.
