Four seniors from North High School have been honored through the 2021 Prudential Spirit of Community Awards, a nationwide youth volunteer recognition program.

Alexandra Delafraz has been selected as a Distinguished Finalist at the state level, and Amelia Blumberg, Eden Fokshner, and Julia Zalta have been honored as top youth volunteers at the local level.

“Volunteerism is a vital component to serving others and our honorees exemplify the selflessness and commitment it takes to fulfill this need,” said North High Principal Dr. Dan Holtzman. “I am proud of their accomplishments and congratulate them for this well-deserved recognition.”

The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards, conducted annually by Prudential Financial in partnership with the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), honors students for making meaningful contributions to their communities through volunteer service.

“Young people who contribute their time and talents to their communities are role models for all of us,” said Prudential Chairman and CEO Charles F. Lowrey. “We salute their dedication, their achievements, and their spirit of community.”

The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards represents America’s largest youth recognition program based exclusively on volunteer service. Since 1995, the program has honored more than 140,000 youth volunteers at the local, state and national levels.
