EPHS would like to recognize a much deserved senior at our campus, Lynn Balderas. As a Prudential Spirit of Community honoree in our community, Lynn was among a select group of very talented and dedicated young volunteers to be considered for state-level recognition in "The 2016 Prudential Spirit of Community Awards Program." It is important that Americans of all ages think about how we can all make a positive difference in our communities. Lynn has spent a lot of his time battling environmental fairness in Maverick County and the Rio Grande River as well as cleaning up Elm Creek Park on Highway 277 North. Lynn Balderas is being recognized with the President’s Volunteer Service Award on behalf of President Barack Obama!!
Congratulations for volunteering significant amounts of precious time to serve our community and country. “Lynn has demonstrated that young people across America are making remarkable contributions to the health and vitality of their communities,” said John Strangfeld, chairman and CEO of Prudential Financial. “These honorees practice a lesson we hope all young people, as well as adults, will emulate,” said National Association of Secondary School Principals Executive Director JoAnn Bartoletti.
