Congratulations to seventh grader Narina Girotra. Narina has been honored for her exemplary volunteer service with a President’s Volunteer Service Award.

The award, which recognizes Americans of all ages who have volunteered significant amounts of their time to their communities and their country, was granted by the Prudential Spirit of Community Awards program. HCS nominated Narina for national honors this fall in recognition of her volunteer service.

In the Spring of 2019, Narina started a project on air quality and took action by measuring the air quality in Hoboken. She presented the data to HCS and shared it with her city council representative, who in turn asked her to present the research to the entire Hoboken City Council.

Congratulations to Narina on her award and for embodying HCS’s mission of service learning!
