The winner of the 2014 Outstanding Community Service award by the Marjorie K. Jackman Memorial, through the Grant Public Schools Foundation, was Jakelynn Broeder, a senior at Perkins County High School.
Broeder will receive $150 and have her name engraved on a plaque to be displayed in the high school lobby.
In the summer of 1995, the Grant Public School Foundation received memorial monies from the Marjorie Jackman estate for the purpose of establishing and maintaining an award presented to a Perkins County High School student to recognize their outstanding service and contributions to the community.
Broeder has helped with local blood drives and the local youth hunt as well as helping with bingo games at Westview Retirement Community. Broeder volunteered at a homeless shelter in Omaha and has helped pack meals for those in need, helped with the local turkey dinner during the holidays and volunteered at the Adams Bank and Trust fall festival.
“I am happy that I can help serve my community and help those that need it,” Broeder said. “You get a sense of pride seeing your work done and that you helped someone else. You can see your community get better from all the work you have done.”
