Award Winner - November
Parker Bovenburg, a senior at Pioneer High School, is the Jefferson award winner for the month of November. After doing his Sophomore Project on childhood obesity, he took action and founded the club “Teens Getting Involved Finally” (TGIF). He and other Pioneer students provided supervision for kindergarten and elementary school students during PTA meetings. They planned engaging activities for the kids that got them excited about physical activity for one to two hour meetings. Parker not only prevented childhood obesity, but he allowed parents to become more involved in their kids’ lives by becoming more active in their schools.

Award Winner - January
Analuna Brambila, a junior at Pioneer High School, is the Jefferson award winner for the month of January. Analuna has been a volunteer at Summer of Service (S.O.S) for the last five years. S.O.S. is a camp designed to get middle school students involved in service activities. Analuna began as a member in the 6th grade, and now she is a leader within the program. She and her devoted colleagues arrived bright and early at 8 AM to enthusiastically start their service. The “hodgepodge” of service opportunities included volunteering at homeless shelters, elderly homes, water quality testing, and a variety of other service activities. Today, as a leader, Analuna is captivated by how excited the kids are to
perform volunteer activities and how easily they fall in love with service. Her service is particularly effective by providing service opportunities for middle school students, which are usually difficult to come by. Being exposed to service at a young age, encouraged Analuna to become active in her community and continue through high school.
