Cyndie Gaining Recognition (National Volunteer Week 2012)

Michelle is impressed by the way that Cyndie has taken initiative, and incorporated so much of her creativity into organizing the school prom. Even more than that she can see that Cyndie cares about the integrity of the students. For example, Cyndie didn’t want the prom king and queen to turn into a popularity contest, so she based the ballot off of characteristics and personality traits of someone who would represent the school well. There were questions like, “Who is really caring and kind?”

The prom court grew quickly, considering the fact that students from all over the school had character.  Michelle said, “I think Cyndie makes people want to be involved because she really cares about the students, and you can see that in the way she interacts with people.”

What is one way that you can go the extra mile like Cyndie does? Instead of doing things the way they always have been done, is there a way that you can take the time to be thoughtful about the tasks that you have to do? Is there a way that you can highlight people who might not always get recognition?

Michelle Chan — an LV serving in campus ministry at De La Salle North Catholic High School in Portland, Oregon — easily identified a student going the extra mile. Lasallian Volunteers inspire the students that they work with, and a lot of times the students inspire the LVs.
