Feb. 17, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON -- A Cabell Midland High School senior was recently named distinguished finalist from West Virginia through the Prudential Spirit of Community Awards program.

Tiffani Webb, 17, has spent the past few years raising money and collecting items for various organizations throughout the community. Each month, Webb targets one or more organization and works to meet those needs.

Webb will receive an engraved bronze medallion.

The top youth volunteers in the state are Jay Haapala, 15, of Elkview and Julian Harrington, 12, of West Union.

The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards is a national program honoring middle level and high school students for outstanding volunteer service.

As state honorees, Haapala and Harrington each will receive $1,000, engraved silver medallions and all-expense-paid trips to Washington, D.C., where they will join 100 other top youth volunteers from across the United States for four days of national recognition events.
