Know someone who goes above and beyond?
Nominations for Deen Day Smith Awards now accepted
Placeholder Image

    We all know someone who is especially selfless and giving, who spends their spare time making life better for others. They do so without thought of compensation or acknowledgment, but shouldn’t they be recognized for their compassion and service?
    That is the reason for the Deen Day Smith Service to Mankind Awards.
    Tuesday, April 10, area citizens who contribute time and effort to helping others will be honored during the 18th Annual Deen Day Smith Service to Mankind Awards banquet, an invitation-only, lavish affair honoring those who put others before themselves. Hosted by the Statesboro Herald and supported by numerous area businesses, the awards ceremony has recognized well over 700 citizens over the past 17 years.
    The Statesboro Herald is seeking nominations of “people who do extraordinary things for their fellow man in Bulloch County,” said Joe McGlamery, Statesboro Herald president. The nominations are for people who have not previously been honored by the program.
    “Every year we discover more and more new things the citizens of this community are doing for others that deserve recognition,” he said. “We know few people engage in this kind of activity for personal recognition, but we seek to recognize them so that others will be encouraged to join them in service to others.”
    Nomination forms can be found daily in the Statesboro Herald. Deadline for submission is 4 p.m. Thursday, March 22. Again, nominations should be of people who have not previously been honored.
    Nomination forms may be mailed to: Deen Day Service to Mankind Awards, Statesboro Herald, P. O. Box 888, Statesboro, Ga. 30459, or hand-delivered to the Statesboro Herald office at 1 Herald Square (Simmons Shopping Center along Walnut Street, between North Main and North College Streets).
