Sixteen members of Alverno High School’s graduating Class of 2011 have received the Father Joaquin Masmitjá Lifetime Service Award.

This award is presented in the form of a gold tassel to any graduating senior who has accumulated a minimum 420 service hours throughout their four years at Alverno High School.

“The gospel tells us that “Whatsoever you do to the least of my brethren you do for me,” says Alverno Campus Minister Susana Capra. “These young women consistently triple their service hours and make community service not only a school requirement, but a part of their daily lives.” As well as giving so generously of their time, the students were required to write an essay reflecting on what service has meant to them and to the community that they serve.

The award is named after the founder of the Immaculate Heart of Mary order, which sponsored the order now known as the Immaculate Heart Community. IHC now sponsors Alverno High School.
