I am excited to share with you the nomination forms for the 2018 Distinguished Service Awards, hosted by the Greater Hickory Jaycees! The banquet will be held on Thursday, May 10, 2018 at Catawba Country Club at 6pm - winners of the awards will be chosen after a public nomination process and honored at the event. The awards are: Outstanding Firefighter, Outstanding Law Enforcement Officer, Outstanding Emergency Medical Personnel, Outstanding Educator (K-12), Outstanding Professor (Higher Ed), Outstanding Healthcare Clinician, Business Person of the Year, Non-Profit Leader of the Year (may be staff or Board member), Outstanding Teen (HS senior - $1,000 scholarship included) and the Bill McDonald Lifetime Achievement Award. Bill McDonald served the City of Hickory as mayor for 20 years and was a leader of the Hickory Jaycees and the North Carolina Jaycees and we have chosen to honor his legacy by awarding a member of our community each year for service to our community.
We are confident that there are many deserving members of the Greater Hickory metro community and we ask that you please share the nomination forms with your colleagues and friends. Nominations are due by April 17th at midnight.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me or the 2018 Distinguished Service Awards project chair, Whitney Coble (firstname.lastname@example.org).
In Jaycee spirit,
2018 Greater Hickory Jaycees Chairman of the Board
