Nominations for the fifth annual Governor’s Volunteer Stars Awards are now being accepted within Roane County.
The awards will celebrate the efforts of volunteers who strive to improve their communities through service.
“Roane County is glad to be able to participate in the Governor’s Volunteer Stars program, and we ask our citizens to nominate someone from their community,” said Roane County Executive Ron Woody.
“Roane County is truly blessed to have many volunteers who service and contribute to the needs of their neighbors and county as a whole,” he added.
“We thank our volunteers.”
Two people — one youth and one adult volunteer — will be selected in Roane County to receive this prestigious award.
Nominees will be judged based on the community’s need 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 in the County Executive's office at Roane County Courthouse, Kingston.
Applications must be received in the County Executive's office by Oct. 31.
Contact Sheila Lemons at 717-4101 or email@example.com for more about the honor or the nomination process.
Recipients of the Roane County volunteer awards will be honored at the Governor's Volunteer Stars Awards ceremony in Cool Springs Marriott in Franklin on March 4, 2013.
Michael Ann Begley was the adult recipient of the 2011 Roane County’s Volunteer Star Award; Joey Goss was the youth recipient.
