Nicholas Carlisle of Hoover, an eighth-grader at Berry Middle School, will be presented with an engraved bronze medallion to recognize his selection as a Distinguished Finalist for Alabama in the 2018 Prudential Spirit of Community Awards.
Nicholas worked with a national charity to sell more than 600 wreaths for the graves of veterans at a local graveyard – and, in the process, has raised more than $3,000 toward his school’s fund for students in need. This young man shines as an exemplary example of the positive difference one can make in the lives of others, no matter how young you may be. Congratulations to Nicholas Carlisle on this much deserved honor in recognition of his devotion to helping others within his community and honoring those who have fought for our country.
About the award:
The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards, conducted by Prudential Financial in partnership with the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), represent the United States’ largest youth recognition program based exclusively on volunteer community service. All middle and high schools in the U.S., along with all Girl Scout councils, county 4-H organizations, Red Cross chapters, YMCAs and affiliates of Points of Light’s HandsOn Network, were eligible to select a student or member for a local Prudential Spirit of Community Award last November. Two State Honorees—one middle and one high school student—plus a select number of Distinguished Finalists from each state and the District of Columbia were selected based on criteria such as personal initiative, effort, impact and personal growth.
