What Paying It Forward Really Means

Jake Gallin, a national honoree in the 2015 Prudential Spirit of Community Awards program, is all about giving back. The Prudential program, co-sponsored with NASSP, is the nation’s largest youth recognition program based solely on student volunteer service. The program is accepting applicants who have exhibited extraordinary volunteer service through November 3.
