Junior High School eighth-grader Demetrius Bidot-Miles has been honored for his volunteer service with a President’s Volunteer Service Award.

The award recognizes those who have volunteered significant amounts of time to serve their communities. It is granted by the Prudential Spirit of Community Awards program on behalf of President Obama.

Junior High School guidance counselor and Community Service Club adviser Lorraine Zemba nominated Bidot-Miles for the award. His community service work was done in his own school, aiding students with special needs during his lunch periods, free periods and his own spare time. He began working with the students in sixth grade and continued his work through the next year.

Bidot-Miles, who is also a member of the school’s Community Service Club, was among a select group of talented and dedicated young volunteers to be considered for this state-level recognition.
