Hayley Munford, a New Bloomfield high school senior, has won a statewide Missouri Outstanding Citizenship Award.
"I was honored," Munford said, "to have been nominated to represent New Bloomfield High School in the competition. To be one of only 16 students in Missouri to receive the award is awesome."
Munford said she was nominated for the award by Diane Pohlman, who is a New Bloomfield government and history teacher.
Munford received the honor at a recent awards luncheon in Jefferson City. She received a plaque and a certificate from the Missouri State Board of Education and the Missouri Bar Association.
The certificate states the 2013 Missouri Award for Outstanding Achievement in Citizenship is presented to Hayley Munford of New Bloomfield "in recognition of outstanding academic achievement, leadership in school activities, community service and commitment to high standards of citizenship."
