Caught in the Act of Giving Back

The award was founded by the GPFPE in 2015 to honor student volunteer projects within the district. Administrators from all GPPSS elementary schools, middle schools, and high schools were invited to submit entries based on their students’ commitment to volunteerism, giving back, and their impact on the community. Winning students were awarded funds to further advance their volunteer work.

Funding for this program was made possible by the Anne R. Hudson Endowment Fund of the GPFPE, held at the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan.
