McClain Hermes - Presidential Award
Posted on 03/21/2018

Seventeen year-old McClain Hermes, a Gwinnett Online Campus student and a world class swimmer who is scheduled to represent Team USA in the Paralympic games in Rio, has been awarded a Certificate of Excellence from the Prudential Spirit of Community Awards and a President’s Volunteer Service Award . Presented annually by Prudential Financial in partnership with the National Association of Secondary School Principals, the Prudential Spirit of Community Awards honors young people for outstanding volunteer service. Certificates of Excellence are granted to the top 10 percent of all Prudential Spirit of Community Award applicants in each state and the District of Columbia. McClain, who is completely blind in one eye and has severely limited vision in the other, was honored for her work with Shoes for the Souls, a non-profit organization she started, which donates new and slightly used shoes to a local homeless shelter. The “small service project”, started by a then eight year-old, has now collected and donated more than 21,000 pairs of shoes to The Atlanta Mission.
