The Pennsylvania Department of State & Education recently announced that Lower Merion High School has earned the Gold-Level Governor's Civic Engagement Award based on the outstanding efforts of students to educate, engage and inform their fellow classmates about how to get involved in the voting process.
In order to achieve Gold-Level status, a school must have more than 85% of eligible students registered to vote. Last year, student-ambassadors in Lower Merion’s Civic Engagement Club, which is sponsored by social studies teachers Erin Laney and Tina Dolente, organized an industrious grassroots initiative to get as many of their fellow Aces registered to vote as possible. This civic-minded group of students ultimately eclipsed the 85% mark as their campaign registered an impressive 87% of eligible classmates!
These sedulous students and teachers received a plaque for their distinguished efforts, which will be unveiled during a special ceremony sometime in the near future. Congratulations to Ms. Laney, Ms. Dolente and all of the students on this outstanding accomplishment!
