Tex Hill Middle School is a proud participant of President’s Volunteer Service Awards (PVSA). Sponsored by the Tex Hill PTSA, this award is open to all Tex Hill students who have volunteered service hours on campus or in their community.
The Tex Hill PVSA Committee recognizes recipients by age in the following categories:
Hours by Award Teens (Up to 15 Years) Young Adults (16 Years+)

Silver 75-99 hrs 175-249 hrs

PVSA awards are based on volunteer age at the end of the award window.
The PVSA national organization gives each certifying organization (i.e. school) the right to establish what it defines as volunteer service as well as the hours that qualify as service. The PVSA committee at Tex Hill has determined that
volunteerism is defined as an act that benefits and builds community and serves those in need,
recorded volunteer service hours must have taken place outside of school hours,
a student cannot accept monetary or other in-kind contributions for recorded volunteer service hours, and
students can record up to 12 hours per day, or up to 99 hours per 7-day week
Along with the ultimate honor of presidential recognition, recipients will receive a personalized certificate, an official pin, and a congratulatory letter from the President of the United States.
