Yosemite High School seniors Ben Johnson and Olivia Mattos received the 2018 Eleanor Roosevelt Community Service Award from the Oakhurst Democratic Club at YHS on May 14.

The award, which includes a $500 scholarship, is given in recognition of graduating seniors who have demonstrated their record of service to the community above and beyond the service hours required for graduation.

Each student submitted letters of recommendation and an essay documenting their commitment to service that were evaluated by a panel of club members, which included former teachers.

Charlie Bednar, secretary-treasurer of the Oakhurst Democratic Club, presented the awards.
