Rowan County United Way is now accepting nominations for the 2014 Governor’s Volunteer Service Award.
The awards program, which was created by the Office of the Governor in 1979, recognizes North Carolina’s most dedicated volunteers.
Through the years, the award has been given to thousands of North Carolinians who have shown concern and compassion for their neighbors by volunteering in their local community.
Each county selects up to 10 individuals, businesses, groups/teams and one paid director of volunteers to be recognized for their outstanding contributions to their communities.
One of the nominees will be nominated for the Governor’s Medallion Award for Volunteer Service, which is awarded to the top 20 volunteers in the state. A local committee evaluates the nominations.
Nomination forms are available at the Rowan County United Way office, at 1930 West Jake Alexander Blvd. The deadline for submission is Dec. 2. For more information, call the Rowan County United Way at 704-633-1802.
