PA Virtual and Rho Kappa Earn Governor’s Silver Civic Engagement Award

In the Community

For the second year in a row, PA Virtual’s Rho Kappa National Social Studies Honor Society has earned
Governor Wolf’s Silver Civic Engagement Award.

 

The award celebrates the efforts of Pennsylvania high school students to educate, engage and inform their fellow students about how to get involved in the voting process. Through their combined efforts across the commonwealth, the members of Rho Kappa helped 68% of our eligible student body register to vote in the upcoming elections.

 

This year, over 70 schools participated in the program. PA Virtual was the only cyber charter school to
participate and one of only two public charter schools to win recognition.


“That is a great achievement, and I’m glad to hear that your students are doing so much to increase
participation,” said Representative Kristine Howard (D- Chester county).


Representative Bob Freeman (D – Northampton county) also wrote to congratulate the students.


The members of PA Virtual’s Rho Kappa society were publicly recognized for their contributions during a
live, virtual event held on Wednesday, May 26th.
