Jackson County is looking for volunteers who have gone above and beyond in this last year. Nominations are now being accepted for the 2021 Governor’s Volunteer Service Award. Nominations are due by Feb. 5.

The awards program, created by the Office of the Governor in 1979, recognizes North Carolina’s most dedicated volunteers. Through the years, the award has been bestowed on thousands of North Carolinians who have shown concern and compassion for their neighbors by volunteering in their local community.

Nomination forms are available in Jackson County by e-mail at jchicoine@mountainprojects.org or call John Chicoine at 356-2833.
