Demopolis High School offers new service endorsement

Demopolis High School is currently seeking businesses, non-profit organizations, churches and other organizations that will provide community service opportunities for students to fulfill the new service endorsement program option.

The program, which will launch in August, requires students to meet a set number of hours to receive the service endorsement emblem on their diploma.

“This will be a way for students to be recognized for their community service by receiving the diploma endorsement,” Leon Clark, principal of Demopolis High School said.

Students will be given a list of groups that plan to provide opportunities to contact and perform their service hours.

Any groups that are interested in participating should contact Cynthia Phillips, community service coordinator at DHS via email at cphillips@demopoliscityschools.org.

In the email, include a contact name, email address, phone number and a description of the type of service opportunity. Participating groups will receive official forms, liability information and other requirements at a later date.
