Salisbury Civitans looking for hometown heroes

The Civitan Club of Salisbury is seeking nominations for its Ernest Curtis Hero Award.

This award is given annually to a Rowan County resident who has displayed heroism through an extraordinary, spontaneous act of bravery or courage, motivated by service to others.

If nominees are law enforcement officers, firefighters or others who work in occupations that expose them to heroic situations, their actions must be above and beyond their normal duties and responsibilities.

To submit a nomination for the award, write a letter describing the individual and his or her deeds, but do not include the person’s name in the letter. Attach a cover sheet to the letter which includes the nominee’s name, your name and contact information, including your phone number.

Nominations must be received by Aug. 19. Nominations may be given to any Salisbury Civitan Club member, mailed to Hero Award, Civitan Club of Salisbury, 1322 S. Fulton Street, Salisbury, NC 28144 or emailed to salisburycivitanpresident@gmail.com The Hero Award will be presented on September 10.

Ernest Curtis, a longtime Salisbury Civitan Club member, was inspired to establish the Hero Award by the many heroic deeds of rescue workers and private citiens following the horrific events of September 11, 2001. The award is intended to recognize ordinary people for extraordinary actions in service to others.
