The Malibu Times 2016 Citizenship Award Winners

Eden Ettenger, a graduating senior at Malibu High School (MHS), has been described as “a student who understands the true sense of service and community.” This could be seen during her time at MHS, where Ettenger led the Best Buddies Club and fought human trafficking with the Freedom Road Project youth group, which she helped found. Ettenger worked with her peers in various clubs and volunteered an extensive amount of time. In addition to a 2016 Citizenship Award, Ettenger was also the recipient of the Junior Year Community Service Award.

Each year, The Malibu Times recognizes local students for their dedication to their schools and the local community. The recipients are chosen by teachers, administrators and peers at their respective schools. The Malibu Times Citizenship Awards were established in 1987 to acknowledge students who show commitment to the community and demonstrate a concern for the rights and needs of others.
