The Johnston County Community Foundation (JCCF) announced that it is accepting nominations for the 2015 Frances Finch Hobart Award for Volunteer Community Service, according to Wanda Blow, board president.

This marks the 10th year in which a Johnston County resident is recognized for outstanding community service. The winner of the award will be asked to designate a local nonprofit organization to receive a $750 grant.

The Frances Finch Hobart Award for Volunteer Community Service is a component fund of the NC Community Foundation. The award seeks to recognize an individual who possesses the ability to help others solve social problems through time, talent, and energy by mobilizing volunteers and displaying a willingness for ongoing involvement. The recipient should demonstrate vision, vitality, determination, selflessness, generosity, and a caring heart.

Previous recipients include Dr. Norwood Williams, Tom Ricks, Nikki Dyke, Evelyn Aranda, Don Stephenson, Cornell Cox, Sarah Yard, Linwood Byrd, and Noela Woodall.

Nomination forms can be found HERE.  The deadline for nominations is April 21.

Nominees from the previous year who did not receive the annual award will automatically be included as a new nominee in the current year’s process. For further information, contact NCCF Northern Piedmont Associate Katie Crumpler at 919-256-6914 or
