Student Community Service Awards
For over 40 years, The Center has worked to mobilize Triangle area students to volunteer and make a difference. Last year our students were recognized for over 50,000 hours of service to the Triangle community. Annually, we host the Tomorrow's Community Leaders Award Ceremony for all student achievement programs each fall.

 Lilith Davis
Piedmont Wildlife Center

Lilith Davis, and her son Angus McQuoid (not pictured), make a great team volunteering together at the Piedmont Wildlife Center. PWC is an organization that promotes conservation of wildlife via their permanent resident "animal ambassadors", which are the central part of their educational programs. Lilith and Angus feed more than twenty animals, including raptors, opossums, owls and hawks. They also attend raptor training, prepare food, change water dishes, clean enclosures, and do whatever is needed to keep the animals happy and safe. Sara Steffen, their Volunteer Supervisor, calls Lilith and Angus “a crucial part of our team,” noting that they often serve as substitutes when other volunteers aren’t able to show up. Lilith and Angus not only help with the animals, but they also attend outreach events, educating the public about Piedmont Wildlife Center and the animals there, and they assist in fundraising events.

Thank you, Lilith and Angus, for being true friends of the animals, and for the hard work you do for our community!
