MILTON, Ga. Two Milton High School students were recently honored for their volunteer efforts.

Ivan Liu, 17, of Alpharetta was honored for his exemplary volunteer service March 11 with a state-level Certificate of Excellence from the 2013 Prudential Spirit of Community Awards program. Liu was nominated for this award by Milton High School where he is a junior. He was among the top 10 percent of all applicants from the state of Georgia.

Liu earned his award by working through the Children's Restoration Network of Atlanta. During the summer, he focused on its annual food and school drive as a regional coordinator. He also planned on working on a new organization called the Your Club You Serve Foundation, where he is designing the website and planning for future events.

Shaurya Verma, 17, of Alpharetta was named one of the top runners-up in the 2013 Prudential Spirit of Community Awards in Georgia. As a result, Verma will receive an engraved Bronze Distinguished Finalist medallion to commemorate this prestigious award. He also has qualified for the President's Volunteer Service Award based on the number of volunteer hours he has volunteered.

Verma, a senior at Milton High School, founded "MDJunior," an organization that brings together medical professionals with middle and high school students in underserved communities to help inspire children. He has raised more than $40,000 to support the organization, which today has 20 chapters in seven states, 114 mentors and nearly 600 participating students.
