(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL)- Volunteering at LRHS helps students qualify for scholarships. Junior Madi Shaefer is well aware of these benefits, and has been volunteering for four years.

For example, Shaefer volunteers for Miss Manatee Softball as a coach for young players and in the concession stand. She enjoys it because it is not only fun for her, but fun for the players, too.

“Volunteering has helped me give back to the sport I love and have played my whole life,” said Shaefer. “Giving back to young softball players makes me feel glad to be someone they look up to.”

There are many opportunities to volunteer at LRHS and students have many opportunities to help in the community.

Community service must be documented to be recorded on student transcripts.  Volunteer verification forms can be found in the guidance office.
