Greensboro, NC -- When you're in high school, you have classes, homework, sports, clubs, not to mention a very important social calendar.

But a group of Guilford County High School seniors did all that, while managing to get GPA's higher than 4.0 and helping the community.

Southwest High School Senior Kayla Smith is one of the recipients of a community service diploma. To recieve a community service diploma, students had to complete 175 hours of community service.  She said, "I mean, it's encouraging kids to do something in the community, which I know most kids prefer to play video games all day and not go out and volunteer and I get pleasure out of it, so it's fun."

Southwest Senior Taylor Wilds listed some of the events she participated in to qualify. She said she worked with the Special Olympics Games of High Point, the Miracle league of High Point, tutoring elementary school students, and elementary school fall and spring festivals.

Students who performed 75 hours of community service received an exemplary award.
