Academic Honors with Distinction
Students working towards the Academic Honors Diploma with Distinction must complete 20 hours of volunteer service while at Harrison High School. These hours can be completed anytime during the summer before freshman year through the deadline in the Spring of senior year. Deadlines for the 20 hours are the first Friday in December for valedictorian candidates and the first Friday in May for all other Distinction candidates.
All service hour projects must be pre-approved by the Student Services office prior to volunteering. The application for service projects must be completed and turned into the Student Services office for pre-approval. Please print the application prior to coming to Student Services for pre-approval. Most types of service hours are accepted.
After completing the service project, obtain a supervisor's signature on the application, attach a reflection about the project and turn all into Student Services for documentation. Please remember that academic diploma requirements must also be met in order to earn the Academic Honors Diploma with Distinction. Please contact your school counselor for questions about academic requirements.
Please see Mrs. Redmon in Student Services with any questions regarding the process or service projects. Mrs. Redmon can also be emailed at firstname.lastname@example.org
