The William Chrisman ACE Club was recognized recently for its community service and volunteerism.
The award was given by the Sugar Creek Optimist Club during their May annual dinner.
"This recognition was not about for the adults, but the youth and their tremendous community involvement," said Rudy Summerville, the LINC Chrisman site coordinator.
The ACE Club was created by former teacher Ken Johnston to promote volunteerism. Student who complete a certain number of hours volunteering receive an athletic letter for their efforts.
During the school year, over 300 students participate in ACE.
The ACE Club received $125 donation from the Optimist Club which they in turn gave back to help students and families hurt and killed in the recent Moore, OK tornado.
Chrisman High School is one of three high schools in the Independence School District. Each is a LINC Caring Communities site.
