Silver Cords

The Silver Cord Program:

The Silver Cord program is a distinguished graduation award available to Wayne Community School seniors who volunteer 160 hours throughout their high school career.  Students who have completed 160 hours of approved volunteer service will be awarded the Silver Cord to wear for recognition at graduation. Students must complete at least 40 hours of volunteer services each year but no more than 80 hours per 1 school year one time will be credited for silver cords as the purpose is to have students become more active in their community throughout their high school career. 2019 Seniors will be prorated to 80 hours of volunteer work. Any student that moves in to our district will be given the opportunity to catch up with his/her grade by completing additional volunteer hours throughout the year.

Purpose:

The purpose of this program is to acknowledge students who go above and beyond in their community by volunteering, to encourage them to find the good in giving back to their community and to  recognize these students for their efforts. Students will not only learn how and why it is important to volunteer, but they will also learn how to develop their own leadership and citizenship skills.  Volunteering helps build character and brings the community together making it a better place.
