Nominations from Craven County are being accepted for the 2019 Governor’s Volunteer Service Award.
The awards program, created by the Office of the Governor in 1979, recognizes 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 local community.
Each county selects up to ten individuals, businesses, groups/teams and one paid Director of Volunteers to be recognized for their outstanding contributions to their communities. One of the nominees may 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 may be submitted online or by downloading a nomination form at https://www.nc.gov/agencies/volunteer/volunteer-awards. Nomination forms are also available at the United Way of Coastal Carolina office.
Completed forms should be returned no later than Monday, January 28, 2019 to: Sandra Phelps or by mailing to Sandra Phelps, c/o United Way, P.O. Box 1385, New Bern, NC 28563.
Submitted by: Sandra Phelps, Executive Director, United Way of Coastal Carolina
