Ninth grade student Nickolas Wrobleski recently qualified for the President’s Volunteer Service Award. The award recognizes Americans of all ages who have volunteered significant amounts of time in service to their community and country. His volunteer efforts align with future career goals. Wrobleski plans to be a cellular and molecular biologist specializing in the field of oncology.
He became involved with the Markey Cancer Center as a middle school student. In 2012, Wrobleski served as spokesperson for the annual fundraising appeal to benefit the cancer center. He continues a strong relationship with this worthy organization selling bracelets, collecting tabs, and planning a 5K race. Wrobleski also volunteers at Signature Healthcare in Georgetown and the Scott County Humane Society.
Wrobleski was eligible for the President’s Volunteer Service Award because he was among the top 10 percent of all applicants in Kentucky for the 2014 Prudential Spirit of Community Awards. As part of this distinguished honor he received a Certificate of Excellence and a letter from the president presented to him by Principal Dwayne Ellison.
“Nickolas is an outstanding student and a leader in volunteer service. He is a role model for his peers. Because of his hard work and vision for the future, I have no doubt Nick will be successful in achieving his education and career goals,” Ellison stated.
In addition to his volunteer work, Wrobleski is active in band, academic team, tennis, and VEX robotics. The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards is sponsored by Prudential Financial in partnership with the National Association of Secondary School Principals.
