St. Andrews graduate honored at State House

Secretary of State A. Ralph Mollis presented the 2011 State Civic Leadership Award to Brian Volpe of Jamestown at a State House ceremony. The St. Andrews School graduate was honored in recognition of his contributions to his school and his community.

Mollis asked high schools around the state to select one male and one female member of the Class of 2011 who best met the ideals of the award: public service, leadership ability and academic achievement.

“This award recognizes students who show an understanding of the importance public service has in a democratic society,” said Mollis. “These students take the principles of civics and put them into action at home and at school.”

More than 70 high schools ranging from Barrington High to Woonsocket High nominated seniors for the honor. This is the fifth consecutive year Mollis has presented the awards.
