Nominations accepted for service awards

Nominations are being accepted for the 2013 Governor’s Service Awards, according to a press release from the office of Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin.

Coordinated by Volunteer West Virginia, the Governor’s Service Awards recognize outstanding individuals, families and organizations for extraordinary service and commitment to their communities.

“Our state is blessed with so many enthusiastic and helpful West Virginians who step forward and give of their time, talents and resources — making our communities wonderful places to live, work and raise a family,” Gov. Tomblin said.

“I encourage all West Virginians to nominate an individual, a family or an organization that exemplifies volunteerism and puts West Virginia first — honor those who give so much of themselves for the benefit of others.”

Recipients of the Governor’s Service Awards will be recognized during an Aug. 7 banquet in Charleston at Faces of Leadership, the state volunteerism conference.

Nomination forms are available through Volunteer West Virginia’s website, www.volunteerwv.org, or by calling 800-WV-HELPS.  Nominations must be postmarked by April 12.

Volunteer West Virginia, the state’s Commission for National & Community Service, is a state agency dedicated to promoting the spirit of volunteerism throughout West Virginia by enabling West Virginians of all ages to strengthen their communities through service and volunteerism.
