Regional Services and Education Center (RSEC) is proud to announce that Parker Bowen of New Boston has been honored for her exemplary volunteer service with a President’s Volunteer Service Award. The award, which recognizes Americans of all ages who have volunteered significant amounts of their time to serve their communities, was recently granted by The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards program. RSEC nominated Bowen in recognition of her volunteer service and dedication to giving back to her community.

Bowen is a senior at The RSEC Academy in Amherst. For the past two years, she has volunteered for Girls at Work, Inc., a Manchester-based organization that empowers girls with the tools to overcome adversity and build confidence to face current and future life challenges. She has been volunteering between five to eight hours per week over this period.

“We are delighted that Parker has been recognized with the President’s Volunteer Service Award for her commitment to serving her community,” said Janet Reed, director at Regional Services and Education Center. “She has selflessly giving back to an organization that makes a difference in the lives of young girls every day. We are proud of Parker for being a role model to all of us at RSEC, and to the young individuals who participate in the Girls at Work program.”

In its 25th year, The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards, sponsored by Prudential Financial in partnership with the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), recognizes middle level and high school students across America for outstanding volunteer service.

“Across the United States, young volunteers are doing remarkable things to contribute to the well-being of the people and communities around them,” said prudential chairman and CEO Charles Lowrey. “Prudential is honored to celebrate the contributions of these students, and we hope their stories inspire others to volunteer, too.”
