Mt. P teen received presidential award for volunteer work

Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- A Mount Pleasant teen is being honored with a presidential award for her volunteer service.

Savannah Campbell, 17, is a recipient of the President's Volunteer Service Award.

She has been a member of Clemson University Extension's 4-H youth development program since 2011.

When she found the club, she realized there was not a club in her area so she started one - The Charleston Change 4-H Club.

As president, Campbell was invited to attend the Health Rocks! national conference in Washington D.C. and received training to become a youth ambassador.

The program is aimed at reducing drug, alcohol and tobacco use in youth ages 8-14.

"I'll always remember the positive impact 4-H has made on me and I'm glad that our programs will continue to give more kids the same opportunities," Campbell said. "I've learned that giving back to your community doesn't only help others but it helps me as well and I would tell other young people to do the same."

Campbell leads trainings and education programs for Family Services on Joint Base Charleston, City of North Charleston, City of Charleston, Town of Mount Pleasant's Recreation Departments and many other groups and organizations.
