MHS Silver Cord
Marshalltown Senior High School’s Silver Cord of Service program is designed to encourage and recognize students who strive and achieve a high level of service in our community. Service builds strong ties between schools and the community. It encourages students to experience an important part of their school and community. It helps them recognize that by being part of the whole community they can make a positive difference.
The Silver Cord of Service Award is a distinguished volunteer service award available to any Marshalltown Senior High School student. Students who qualify must earn a minimum 100 hours of community service/volunteering during Freshman/Sophomore years of high school and 100 hours of community service/volunteering during Junior/Senior years of high school, for a total of at least 200 hours on or before May 1 of their senior year. (Special consideration will be given to students who move in late in their high school career or do not graduate in four years.) Upon graduation, the Silver Cord of Service Award recipients will receive a Silver Cord to wear as recognition of their achievement during graduation
