SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- President Bush will give an award to a 24-year-old Utah man who volunteers to help young people.
Rick Pehrson will get the President's Volunteer Service Award when Bush arrives Wednesday to raise money for presidential candidate John McCain.
The White House says Pehrson is a team leader who has logged more than 900 hours in the AmeriCorps Youth Service Corps.
Pehrson's work included recruiting, training and managing more than 1,300 volunteers for the reopening of the Utah State Capitol and eight-day open house.
In fall, the South Jordan man plans to start law school at the University of Utah.
