The Peter R. Marsh Foundation is now receiving nominations for the 2022-23 Silent Servant Scholarship Awards. We are proud to recognize students like Tyler Baldwin below, of Braxton County HS in Sutton, WV, who rushed into his neighbor’s blazing home in the middle of the night and saved the elderly and disabled man’s life by carrying him to safety.
But your nominee does’t have to be a real-life Super Hero like Tyler. All across America high school stduents are performing amazing acts of empathetic community service. By engaging in public service, students acquire empathy and compassion. We know such selfless service provides them personal self-worth and produces greater academic success. As adults, these student-servants become able parents and productive members of society.
Our Scholarship is not a contest. You know who your Silent Servants are. Schools, counselors, teachers and administrators choose their winners by sending us a Nomination Form. It’s simple, fast and free. All you have to do is fill out this short form: https://www.prmfoundation.org/student-nomination-form/
On November 29th, 2021 Tyler Baldwin showed himself to be a true hero. Upon being alerted that his elderly neighbor’s home was on fire and knowing that the gentleman could not walk very well, Tyler ran across the road and into the burning house to help. Tyler was able to carry the gentleman to safety.
But long before this heroic young man saved a life, Tyler was looked up to by his peers for always thinking of others. He remains the kind and empathetic student that is loved by all who know him at Braxton County High in Sutton, WV. He is a true Silent Servant!
