Congratulations to Ahmad Raza for being nominated for the Daily Herald Leadership Team! Congratulations also to Safiyah Azeez for the honorable mention she received in the Daily Herald as well! The DAILY HERALD LEADERSHIP TEAM’s purpose is to recognize high school students who demonstrate leadership through volunteerism and community service.
Applicants were from all public and private high schools in DuPage County or within in the Daily Herald coverage area. Students must be in good academic standing to be nominated and all students from grades 9th-12th are eligible.
A panel of judges at the Daily Herald choose the leadership team students based on various criteria, such as how much leadership the student demonstrates in his/her volunteer work; the type of volunteer work and how important it is; the length of time devoted; and how invested the student when it comes to volunteer work outside of the a school requirement.
