For longer than I can remember I have been sending out this annual solicitation for award nominees, and I have to say this may be my last, but I digress. Again it is time for the Awards Committee (whoever that may be) to get together to select worthy recipients for the Club’s public sector, private sector, humanitarian and vocational awards. Included herewith is a description of each award and a list of past recipients of each award. What the committee needs from you are suggested award recipients in each category. Please note, that in almost every instance, the awards are given to people suggested to the committee by members of our Club.
 
While award recipients are frequently members of our Club, they do not have to be members.  In fact,  most of the time the recipients are not members of the Club.  I would also point out that even if you do not have an idea for an award recipient for one particular category, please give us as many suggestions as you can for the other categories. We would appreciate it if you would get back to us as soon as possible with your suggestions. Awards day is scheduled for June 8, 2022 this year (a tad bit earlier than usual).  The committee does need to meet to ultimately decide on the award recipients and then the awards need to be ordered and engraved so please get your suggestions back to us by May 4.
 
If you have any questions regarding any of the award categories, please contact me (Bill S. Kany at 602-7381 or email me at bkany@sbsavings.bank) or the other members of the committee, Joe Moreshead, and Brian Dalliare (neither of whom actually knows they are on the committee and note there may be others but I don’t know who they are).  If we do not have any suggestions from you the committee is left to its own devices which is never good.  The alternative is to not give out one or more awards if we do not have candidates, but that is silly because there are so many worthy candidates out there.
 
Thanks, Bill
 
 
Here are the award descriptions.  I have also attached a list of the past recipients of each award.
 
The Private Sector Award is awarded to a citizen whose good works have been performed independently of their employment in the private sector. Recipients work for the public good, while being privately employed or not employed by a government or community entity. An example of a past recipient would be a building contractor who works towards helping the hungry through setting up a self-supporting meal program.
 
The Public Sector Award is awarded to a citizen who, in the course of their employment or funding, serves the public with government and/or public monies. Recipients are usually employed by a government agency, hold a political office, or have their good works funded in the course of their employment. An example of a past recipient would be a state senator who has worked towards promoting the good of the community.
 
The Humanitarian Award is awarded to a citizen, private or public, who has done exceptional work to further the good of humanity in the community. Past Recipients include a nurse who set up a hospice program in the area.
 
The Vocational Service Award is awarded to a citizen, private or public, who has done exceptional work to promote vocational education and vocational programs.
