2009 Governor's Service Awards

Each year, West Virginia's volunteers quietly perform amazing things all around us every day. One of the Commission's purposes is to showcase outstanding examples of community leadership as role models so the public will appreciate the value of service for themselves and their communities.

The Commission's annual Governor's Service Awards are the premiere way these volunteers are showcased. Each year at the state volunteer conference, Faces of Leadership, West Virginians with exemplary dedication to service and volunteerism are celebrated at a banquet where they are given an award from the Governor. In addition to receiving the award, Volunteer West Virginia, Inc. will donate $500 to a West Virginia charitable organization of the recipient's choice.
