LMHS buildOn celebrates service stars at "100 Hours" ceremony

The Lower Merion High School buildOn community team recently gathered to celebrate 53 members who surpassed the prestigious "100 Hours of Service" milestone in a special ceremony in the Large Group Instruction (LGI) room. buildOn officers were joined by Principal Sean Hughes as they presented this year's honorees with a certificate to commemorate their outstanding achievement in front of their fellow club members.

Last year, 369 buildOn members provided a club record 13,229 hours of service through more than 100 projects, including tutoring at Bethel Academy; delivering food to families-in-need; cleaning and beautifying local parks; working with shelter children; feeding the homeless; volunteering their time with The Hearth, American DanceWheels, Emily's Entourage, the Buonicanti Fund and JCHAI; supporting community events; and much more.

The LMHS buildOn Trek Program has also raised nearly $550,000 to build a total of seven schools in Taverne, Menard and La Civette, Haiti; Jokaiya and Bisanpsur, Nepal; Las Brisas, Nicaragua; and Samuel Luckwa, Malawi. This year's Trek Team, which will be returning to Nepal to construct another school with a community-in-need, will be announced later this fall.

Congratulations to all of this year's honorees!
