Anastasia Walton receives award for service.
Lakehill Preparatpory School senior Anastasia Walton has been selected by the Texas Association of Secondary School Principals (TASSP) for the Teens Serving Texas Award.
This prestigious award was designed to recognize Texas high school seniors who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of community service, leadership, and personal accomplishments.
Walton has received the President's Volunteer Service Gold Award every year since the award has been available at Lakehill. In high school, this equates to more than 250 hours of service every year. While Anastasia is a dedicated volunteer through her church youth group, she also offers her time to a variety of school and community causes.
To be considered for this award, a student must be nominated by their high school principal. Applicants were selected based on their overall grade point average, pursuit of an advanced diploma, and evidence of exceptional service to the community. Each student nominee completed an application that included reference letters, an essay on their personal goals, and documentation of their contribution to the community. From this state-wide group of outstanding leaders, five were chosen to receive the Teens Serving Texas Award and a $500 unrestricted scholarship.
As a winner of the TASSP Teens Serving Texas Award, Walton will be invited to the TASSP Summer Workshop in Austin on June 12, 2014, to receive her award in front of 2,100 TASSP principals and headmasters.
