CHARLESTON — Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin announced that nominations are now being accepted for the 2012 Governor’s Service Awards.
The Governor’s Service Awards, which are coordinated by Volunteer West Virginia, the state’s Commission for National and Community Service, recognize outstanding individuals, families and organizations for extraordinary service and commitment to their communities.
The individuals and organizations that are selected as recipients of the Governor’s Service Award will receive recognition during a banquet at the state volunteerism conference, Faces of Leadership, in Charleston, on August 8, 2012. Last year’s recipients volunteered to mentor college-bound youth, promoted breast cancer awareness, used creative talents to benefit nonprofit organizations, and created economic opportunities through tourism, just to name a few.
Nomination forms are available on the Volunteer West Virginia web site, www.volunteerwv.org, or by calling (800) WV-HELPS.
Nominations should be postmarked by April 13, 2012.
