“Covington thrives because we’re blessed with volunteers who, without a second thought, give time and energy to helping others, said Shannon Ratterman, Program Director of Community Development at The Center. “It’s just what they do.”

Nominations are due by Sept. 20. and the nomination form can be accessed online.

CGN notes past winners have:

• Demonstrated a strong commitment to Covington.
• Shown a positive vision for the community.
• Been successful in accomplishing projects and responsibilities.
• Clearly shown concern for others.
• Demonstrated the ability and willingness to bring people together to facilitate positive change.
• Provided creativity in thinking and planning (new ideas, new solutions).
• Maintained a positive attitude.

“Often these people work without regard for credit, but we just want to call attention to them and their work because as a way to express gratitude and, hopefully, inspire others to become involved in Covington,” Ratterman said.

Winners will be notified at the end of the month and recognized later this year.
