Deadline is Feb. 18
FRANKFORT, Ky. (Jan. 16, 2015) — The deadline to nominate a Kentuckian or a group for 2015 Governor’s Service Awards is Feb. 18. The award honors individuals and groups and highlight the impact of volunteerism and service in 2014.
“So many Kentuckians serve their neighbors through faith-based organizations and as volunteers for community groups, addressing a variety of unmet critical needs,” Beshear said. “These awards are a wonderful way to show our gratitude and appreciation for these individuals.”
The Kentucky Commission on Community Volunteerism and Service hosts a ceremony each year to publicly honor the winners and others who have given back to their communities through volunteering and service.
“Service is about taking the initiative to make a change for others,” said Joe Bringardner, KCCVS executive director. “These awards help give much-needed focus on the people and projects that are shaping our commonwealth to be a better place to live.”
