About the President's Volunteer Service Awards:  
The President's Council on Service and Civic Participation (the Council) was established in 2003 to recognize their valuable contributions volunteers are making in our communities and encourage more people to serve. The Council created the President's Volunteer Service Award program as a way to thank and honor Americans who, by their demonstrated commitment and example, inspire others to engage in volunteer service.
As always, thank you for your continued support of Volunteer Northwest Mississippi and thank you for the work you do in your community.  I look forward to receiving your nominations and honoring your volunteers!
