72 Honored for Community Service Efforts

Seventy-two students have joined the ranks of those earning Inspiring Service Awards for their community service efforts this semester, bringing the total to 139 as of Friday.

The awards came from the InnerView community service platform, which Stevenson students use to create service portfolios. They type written reflections about their work, and upload photos and videos. Through the portfolios, students track their progress toward the UN Global Goal (or goals) they have set for themselves.

The use of InnerView and UN Global Goals is part of the school’s new community service philosophy, unveiled this year.

Fourteen students reached Honor Award level: seniors Allison Chen, Sylvia Chen; juniors Megan Bi, Isabel Hardy, Maya Korol, Richard Lee, Kai Mayahara and Alisa Wang; sophomores Vivek Dhande and Kaitlyn Lu; and freshmen Carson Ezell, Arjun Nageswaran, Violet Park and Dorothy Yin.
