Civitan Club seeks nominations of hometown heroes

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

The 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.

To submit a nomination, write a letter describing the individual and his, her or their deeds, but do not include their names in the letter. Attach a cover sheet that includes the nominee’s name(s), your name and contact information, including your phone number.

Nominations must be received by Friday. Nominations may be given to any Salisbury Civitan Club member; mailed to Hero Award, Civitan Club of Salisbury, 530 Timberlane Trail, Salisbury, NC 28147, or emailed to education@salisburysymphony.org. The Hero Award will be presented Sept. 5.

Ernest Curtis, a longtime Salisbury Civitan member, was inspired to establish the Hero Award by the heroic deeds of rescue workers and private individuals after Sept. 11, 2001.
