In addition to the Volunteer Louisiana awards, there are various types of national volunteer service awards available to recognize individuals and groups:
The Military Outstanding Volunteer Medal
In Lafayette, the University of Louisiana Lafayette AmeriCorps program graduated 30 members. One member, in particular, not only met her year of service requirements for AmeriCorps, she also went above and beyond by volunteering an additional 150 hours. These additional volunteer hours were completed outside of her AmeriCorps responsibilities and on top of her class schedule. In special recognition for this accomplishment, the member, Lauren, was presented with the Louisiana Volunteer Service Award on behalf of the Lt. Governor’s office. That is true dedication to service!
