Phoenix Country Day School senior Evan Pittman has received the President’s Volunteer Service Award for the second time. He received the award for performing more than 240 hours of volunteer and civic service in 2016, and was presented the honor by PCDS Dean of Upper School Students Jenny Treadway. Previously, Evan also received the country’s highest award for volunteerism for his efforts in 2015.
Evan routinely performs on the violin for nursing and Veterans home patients, as well as cancer-stricken children at Phoenix Children’s hospital, and for a variety of public ceremonies. During 2016, he also raised $3500 for combat-wounded Veterans through the Bob Woodruff Foundation, and served as a delegate to Arizona Boys State, a commissioner with the Governor’s Youth Commission, and an intern with the Re-Elect McCain for Senate Campaign.
In 2015, Evan was named one of the City of Phoenix’s Outstanding Young Men of the Year.
