SILVER CORD PROGRAM
The Silver Cord Program is a voluntary graduation incentive program to promote volunteerism in students in Appanoose County. Centerville, Moravia and Moulton students who volunteer a minimum of 80 hours in their community throughout their high school career will graduate with a silver cord, a special mention in the Commencement program and be eligible to compete for additional monetary scholarships provided by PACT (Promoting Appanoose & Centerville Together).
The goal of the Silver Cord program is to create opportunities for students to contribute to their community while building citizenship skills, fostering caring relationships with those around them and growing their own self-confidence. Additionally, the program is designed to help students enhance their education and career prospects after graduating.
Students can begin earning hours during the summer leading into their freshman year of high school and must complete and submit their hours by May 1st of their senior year.
