Civitan Club accepting nominations for Servant’s Heart Award

SALISBURY — The Civitan Club of Salisbury is accepting nominations for the Servant’s Heart Award. The award is a multi-disciplinary award recognizing outstanding service to individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (I/DD).

The award is an initiative of Civitan International, which has made service to people with I/DD a major focus for more than 70 years.

Nominees for the Servant’s Heart Award can be teachers, therapists, vocational educators, social workers or others whose excellence in service to citizens with I/DD deserves recognition.

To nominate someone for the award, fill out the application available at www.salisburycivitan.org , on Facebook at Salisbury Civitan Club or contact Maggie Blackwell at maggies.attic@gmail.com with the name of the nominee, their role in service, and their contact info.

The Servant’s Heart Award winner will be publicly honored with an awards ceremony and luncheon at Country Club of Salisbury on April 2.

Civitan International, founded in 1917, is an organization of volunteer clubs dedicated to the idea of service to others. Clubs around the world support a variety of causes but are united in the common bond of service to citizens with I/DD and support of the Civitan International Research Center — a leading research facility studying autism, Down syndrome, Alzheimer’s and a variety of brain-related disorders.
