Lakehill has a long tradition of community service with students who give generously of their time and talents to make an impact on their communities. Sophomore Blake Perry was recently selected as Lakehill's local honoree in the Prudential Spirit of Community Awards program for his outstanding volunteer efforts.

Blake collected more than $12,000 worth of children’s clothing, shoes, and school supplies that he donated to refugee children at the U.S. border with Mexico. As part of his Eagle Scout project, Blake Perry set up donation boxes at his church, Wilshire Baptist, and encouraged family and friends to donate during a presentation at a Sunday service.

"I wanted to do something to help refugees," Perry said. "This project will have a positive impact on the children who need it the most."

Sponsored by Prudential Financial and the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), the award recognizes outstanding community service by young Americans. State Honorees will be named in February.

"By shining a spotlight on their service, we hope that more young people will be inspired to serve their communities and make a difference to the people around them," said Prudential Chairman and CEO John Strangfeld.

 

Lakehill Headmaster Roger L. Perry praised Perry for his dedication to volunteer service. "Blake sets a positive example for young people. We are extremely proud of his efforts."
