BURGAW- The deadline for nominations for the 2023 Governor’s Volunteer Service Award is approaching quickly.
“The deadline is Feb. 13, so there is still a little time remaining to submit nominations for the 2023 Governor’s Volunteer Service Award,” said Tammy Proctor, the Pender County Coordinator for the 2023 Volunteer Service Awards.
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 10 individuals, businesses, groups/teams, and one paid director of volunteers to be recognized for their outstanding contributions to our community,” said Proctor.
One of the nominees will be nominated for the Governor’s Medallion Award for Volunteer Service, awarded to approximately the top 20 volunteers. A local committee evaluates the nominations.
“We have a number of amazing volunteers in Pender County,” said Proctor. “We urge every organization, director, or business to nominate someone today.”
Printed nomination forms are available in Pender County at the Pender County Tourism office, 106 E. Wilmington St. in Burgaw.
