2017 Governor's Service Award Recipients


Every day, West Virginia's volunteers quietly accomplish amazing things all around us. One of the Commission's purposes is to showcase outstanding examples of community volunteer leadership so the public will appreciate the value of service for themselves and their communities

The annual Governor's Service Awards, coordinated by Volunteer West Virginia, are the premiere way these volunteers are showcased. This year’s recipients will be honored at an awards dinner at the Culture Center at the Capitol. The event will take place on September 14th at 6:30pm.
