Broward College Only State College in Florida to be Honored by Junior Achievement

 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
FORT LAUDERDALE, FL (Feb. 26, 2015) – Junior Achievement USA® (JA) recently announced that it will honor Broward College with one of 50 2013-2014 U.S. President's Volunteer Service Awards. The organizations receiving the awards provided Junior Achievement with significant volunteer resources during the 2013-14 school year. The awards will be presented at a gala dinner on March 10 in New York City.
 
“Broward College always strives to be a central fixture in the community, so it is an honor to be the only state college in Florida, as well as one of the three colleges and universities nationwide to be recognized to receive the U.S. President’s Volunteer Service Award,” said Broward College President J. David Armstrong, Jr.
 
Broward College is receiving the 2013-2014 U.S. President's Volunteer Service Award at the Silver level for providing at least 10,000 volunteer hours to local Junior Achievement offices during the year. The complete list of recipients is located here.
 
President George W. Bush established the President's Council on Service and Civic Participation (the Council) in 2003 to recognize the valuable contributions volunteers make in communities and encourage more people to serve. The Council created the President's Volunteer Service Award program as a way to thank and honor Americans who, by their demonstrated commitment and example, inspire others to engage in volunteer service. In 2006, Junior Achievement became an official certifying organization for this award, which recognizes corporations with a U.S. presence that provide volunteers to teach JA programs anywhere in the world.
