SENATE RESOLUTION NO. 22

(By Senators Jenkins and Plymale)


Recognizing Anastacia Meadows on winning the 2009 Prudential Spirit of Community Award.

Whereas, Anastacia Meadows, an esteemed resident of Huntington, West Virginia, and a junior at Cabell Midland High School in Ona, West Virginia, has achieved national recognition for exemplary volunteer service by receiving the 2009 Prudential Spirit of Community Award; and
Whereas, This prestigious award, presented by Prudential Financial in partnership with the National Association of Secondary School Principals to two youth volunteers in each state, honors young volunteers across America who have demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to serving their communities; and
Whereas, Ms. Meadows earned this award by giving generously of her time and energy to promoting recycling in her school and community by establishing a recycling program, founding a school environmental club and participating in community events; and
Whereas, When Anastacia saw a garbage truck haul away a huge amount of newspapers from her school one morning, she obtained permission from school officials to launch a classroom paper recycling program, which soon expanded to Barboursville Library and local businesses; and
Whereas, After Anastacia participated in a community recycling forum, Goodwill Industries agreed to place two permanent bins at her high school; and
Whereas, Anastacia also founded an "eco-club", the second largest club in her high school, that works on environmental projects as well as collecting pet supplies for an animal rescue center and pop tabs for Ronald McDonald House; and
Whereas, The success of the State of West Virginia, the strength of our communities and the overall vitality of American society depends upon the dedication of our young people like Ms. Meadows who use their considerable talents and resources to serve others; therefore, be it
Resolved by the Senate:
That the Senate hereby recognizes Anastacia Meadows on winning the 2009 Prudential Spirit of Community Award; and, be it
Further Resolved, That the Senate extends best wishes for her continued success and happiness; and, be it
Further Resolved, That the Clerk is hereby directed to forward a copy of this resolution to Anastacia Meadows and her family.
