The deadline to nominate a deserving individual to be considered for a 2019 Deen Day Smith Service to Mankind Award is Monday at 4 p.m.
"The Statesboro Herald and other sponsors need the public's help in identifying those in the community who make so many contributions to the lives of others," said Joe McGlamery, the president of the Statesboro Herald, which hosts the Deen Day Smith Service to Mankind Awards.
The 31st annual invitation-only gala will be held Tuesday, April 23, at Georgia Southern University's Nessmith-Lane Conference Center.

daysmith. Nominations should be of persons who have dedicated a significant portion of their lives to help others. Nominees should reflect a spirit of giving and compassion and made a difference in the lives of the less fortunate.
“Every community has a vital group of individuals who give of themselves to make their communities better,” said McGlamery, chairman of the Selection Committee. “Bulloch County seems to have more than its fair share of servant leaders and it is this group that we seek to recognize with the Deen Day Smith Service to Mankind Awards.”
Since the awards were established in 1989, more than 800 Bulloch County residents have been recognized with the Deen Day Smith Service to Mankind Awards.
