LISBON – The Junior Volunteers from Lisbon Community School and from Philip W. Sugg Middle School were honored during assemblies.
Students were recognized for a year of assisting with projects in the Lisbon School Department. Close to 100 students from grades five through eight participated in the program.
Students volunteered during recess or after school as book buddies for younger students, assisted with the drama, music and art programs, covered local school events for the school newspapers, babysitting for PTO events and other projects benefiting the student community.
Many of the students were inspired by their parent and grandparents who are part of the force of more than 400 adult volunteers in Lisbon.

Sugg Middle School and Lisbon High School The junior program is designed to offer a volunteer experience within the school during approved times by teachers and parents,” said Community Resource and Volunteer Coordinator Monica Millhime.
