Two students from Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 are among top youth volunteers honored by The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards, a nationwide program honoring young people for outstanding acts of volunteerism.
Olivia Brammer and Egeziharya Yilma were selected to be among six Distinguished Finalists from Minnesota for the Prudential Spirit of Community Award. This is the highest honor for volunteering that any Burnsville High School student has attained.
“To have both of them selected for this award is amazing,” said Bri Ostoff, Community Education Youth Service Coordinator. “We can be very proud that Burnsville High School students have received this level of recognition for their community service.”
