Do you know someone living in Athens, who, over a long span of time and beyond their regular employment, has exhibited generous community spirit, and a commitment to improving the quality of life for the residents of Athens and the entire community? Someone who demonstrates outstanding leadership, citizenship, vision, civic pride, and a strong commitment to a better Athens and whose volunteerism and community involvement have had a positive influence and improved the quality of life for individuals in Athens? Someone who has gone that extra mile, who’s done more than is expected to make Athens a better community in which to live, work and raise a family? Someone who may go largely unknown to the majority of the community, and quietly performs tasks that make Athens a better place to call home?
