Volunteer Stars Awards Now Accepting Applications
Nominations for the Seventh Annual Governor's Volunteer Stars Awards are now being accepted within Montgomery County. The awards will celebrate the efforts of volunteers who strive to improve their communities through service.
One youth and one adult will be selected in Montgomery County to receive this prestigious award. Nominees will be judged based on the community's needs of the volunteer service performed, initiative taken to perform the service, creativity used to solve a community problem and impact of the volunteer service on the community.
Nomination forms are available at the County Mayor's Office, 1 Millennium Plaza, and online at www.mcgtn.org. Nominations must be received by the County Mayor's Office by Wednesday, November 19, 2014. Mayor Jim Durrett states, "We know that Montgomery County has an overwhelming number of incredible volunteers. Please take time to nominate those volunteers that give of freely of their time and talents to help out your organizations."
Recipients of the Montgomery County volunteer awards will be honored at the Governor's Volunteer Stars ceremony in Nashville in early 2015. For more information call Elizabeth Black at 931-648-8482.
