Nomination deadline extended for Governor’s Volunteer Service Award
The call for nominations for the 2017 Governor’s Volunteer Service Award has been extended.
The awards program, created by the Office of the Governor in 1979, recognizes some of North Carolina’s most dedicated volunteers. Through the years, the award has been bestowed on thousands of North Carolinians who have shown concern and compassion for their neighbors by volunteering in their communities.
Each county selects as many as 10 individuals, businesses, groups or teams, and one paid director of volunteers to be recognized for their 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 in Rowan County at Rowan County United Way, 1930 Jake Alexander Blvd. W., Suite B.
Forms should be returned to that address by Monday.
