YLHS PTSA Service Award Nominations 2023-2024

Honor Those Who Go Above and Beyond!

Do you know a person or organization that has done service for our school that you think should be recognized?

Now is your chance to make their good deeds known!

Each year PTA/PTSA's across the nation recognize those individuals and organizations that have distinguished themselves in outstanding volunteer service.  We need you to nominate individuals who have distinguished themselves by going above and beyond their positions to serve both the students and YLHS. Any outstanding teachers, staff, coaches, volunteers, and community members are eligible for nomination. The deadline to turn it in is March 31, 2024.  Don't miss this chance to honor an outstanding individual! Here is the link for the live Google sheet
