Volunteer West Virginia is happy to announce this year's Governor's Service Awards recipients and nominees. Thank you to the nominees who took the time to nominate a volunteer superstar in their community. A complete list of this year's recipients and nominees can be found here
The Governor’s Service Awards, the state’s most prestigious volunteer award, honors individuals and organizations who roll up their sleeves to solve community problems in an innovative way.
In 2018, the eleven recipients of the award improved their communities in many creative ways. Some examples include: creating awareness and community solutions for human trafficking; mentoring youth through tennis and cheerleading; maintaining and preserving beloved wilderness and hiking trails - and much more.
Outstanding West Virginia individuals and organizations that were selected as recipients will be honored at a special banquet at the Culture Center in Charleston on September 6th.
Be sure to mark your calendars - nominations for next year will open in the Spring of 2019.
