More than 100 District 230 students from Orland Park recently received the Cook County Sheriff's Youth Service Medal of Honor. Each recipient performed more than 100 hours of community service during the previous school year.

Mayor Dan McLaughlin invited the honorees to the December 17 Village Board Meeting, where he and Trustee Jim Dodge, chair of the village's Communications and Technology Committee, presented each of the students from Sandburg, Stagg and Andrew High Schools with a Village of Orland Park Community Pride Award.

"We invited you tonight to give you a public ‘pat on the back' and to thank you for your service to the community," McLaughlin told the teens. "These kids are our future and we know we're in good hands," the mayor said to the board room filled with family members. The District 230 students performed a collective total of 13,860 hours of community service and had more honorees at the sheriff's ceremony than most of the other Cook County towns.
