Superintendent's Volunteer Service Award

Cord Requirements for WHS

Weatherford ISD seeks to graduate students who are well-rounded and know the value of giving back to their community. To accomplish this goal, the WISD Communications office offers the Superintendent’s Volunteer Service Award program. This program is designed to honor our students, staff, and volunteers whose volunteer service enriches our schools and community.

Who can participate?

All Weatherford ISD students, employees, and volunteers are eligible.

What are the requirements?

Volunteers must record their service hours from activities completed at school, church, and other community organizations on the WISD Volunteer Service Award Tracking Form. Volunteer service hours from May 1 of one year through May 1 of the following year may be submitted. Volunteer hours are defined as those contributions of time made to the school, church, or organization that have a direct benefit to our community. Volunteer service to a school should include hours beyond what a student is required to do as a part of their participation in athletics or extra-curricular activities.

What do recipients receive?

  • Students who complete the requirements by May 1 during their Senior year also get to add a cord for Graduation to their cap and gown.  
Hours do not accumulate from year to year. You may participate any year, but must participate your Senior year if you wish to earn the cord to wear at graduation.
