Jefferson Awards

Capuchino is an official Jefferson Awards Leadership School.  We are honored to be one of the 20 founding leadership high schools from the entire Bay Area.

In 1972, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Senator Robert Taft, Jr., and Sam Beard started the Jefferson awards to create a "Nobel Prize" for public service in America.  The mission of the Jefferson Awards is to honor Americans who have performed outstanding public service and inspire others to follow.

Over the past thirty-four years, many extraordinary Americans have received the annual national awards, but the most outstanding winners are the thousands of local "unsung heroes"-- ordinary people, doing extraordinary things, who are honored for their contributions.

CBS 5 TV, KCBS 740 AM radio, and the San Francisco Chronicle are thrilled to be able to recognize local students as a part of their weekly Jefferson Awards media campaign.

The 20 Jefferson Awards Service Leadership Schools are serving as role models for other schools around the greater Bay Area- and eventually the country- to emulate.  Each school's faculty leadership and their student service stars are helping pass the tradition of voluntary service to future generations, while promoting a culture of volunteerism, youth ethics, and leadership.

To learn more about the program, how you can get involved, or how you can nominate a worthy student, please contact Ms. McHale or the student coordinators so they can give you all key information.

Let's never forget that one person can make a difference, and it starts with you!

Mchale, Josie
