Dividend Volunteers
Volunteers are not paid -- not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless.

The Dividends School Volunteer program is the district wide program which promotes community involvement in Seminole County schools like Hagerty High School.  Volunteer participation hours are documented and are what have made HHS a 5 Star School!  Adult and Student Volunteer hours lead to the Golden and Silver School Awards.  In order to volunteer, you must submit an application to the Dividends Office.  Current volunteers are required to re-activate their applications annually, which can be done online thru the county website.  Don’t forget to log all volunteer hours (on and off campus) in support of HHS activities for 2013-2014. Every hour counts!

Dividend Recognition Program
Here at Hagerty High School we have numerous dedicated Dividends who devote countless hours assisting staff and students. Many opportunities afforded to our school population wouldn’t be possible without our volunteers.  To thank those who have made such a difference at HHS, PTSA recognizes the efforts of Hagerty’s outstanding dividends on a monthly basis.  If you know of a volunteer who deserves to be rewarded for their efforts, we ask that you nominate them by submitting their name in the nominating box provided in the front office, or emailing your nomination directly to  Let’s work together and show our appreciation to those volunteers who are working hard to make HHS the best it can be!

November Dividend of the Month- Damien Gravois
December Dividend of the Month- Lisa Harter and Catherine Griffiths
January Dividend of the Month- Ryan Lee and Patty Reyenga
February winners: Meg Farley and Linda Wiesner
