Isaac Neiman of West Point has been honored for his exemplary volunteer service with a President’s Volunteer Service Award. He is a senior at Guardian Angels Central Catholic High School.
This award, which recognizes Americans of all ages who have volunteered significant amounts of their time to serve their community and country, was recently presented by the Prudential Spirit of Community Awards. Neiman earned his award by performing 400 hours of community service during his high school career.
As a member of the youth group Mission Possible, Neiman attended an out-of-state mission trip for one week every summer, helping communities in need. During those trips, he worked on community improvement projects and worked with youth.
He also attended March for Life in Washington DC every year since 2010 to protest abortion with over 250,000 other people across the country.
Neiman’s service has also been performed in the community of West Point. Some of his service has included cleaning out baseball concession stands, coaching Knights of Columbus basketball and singing in the school choir.
When asked what volunteer activity was most rewarding to him, Neiman responded, “Going on mission trips every summer. You get to help a lot of people, and you can really tell how grateful they are that you are helping them, whether the task is small or large.”
Isaac is the son of Julie Neiman and Bryan Neiman.
