The Board of Education continues to honor students who are making a difference in their school and community with the John H. Crowder Service Award. At the Dec. 7 meeting, a Porter Ridge High senior who has a heart for service.

December 2021 Crowder Award Winner Imani Holland loves being a Porter Ridge Pirate. Her passion has always been to give back to her school community. Imani is a member of the Porter Ridge High Student Council. Through this organization, she has helped to plan homecoming dances, lip sync battles, Trunk or Treat events, and door decorating contests.

Imani also has a special bond with the Transition to Adult class and is currently working closely with these students and their teachers to execute a monthly craft project that will include a snack and games.

Imani helps with a children's charity in Monroe to ensure that families have toys for Christmas. In addition, she always participates in the Angel Tree Program to help provide clothing for families in need.

Imani is an active member of HOSA (future health professionals) and the PRHS Interact Club. The Interact Club hosts two blood drives per year. Imani is always dedicated to helping with the set up, and she volunteers throughout the day giving out juice and snacks, and helps to break down the event. 

After graduation, Imani plans to attend Ohio State University and major in nursing.
