CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA — Each day, volunteers make outstanding contributions to Chesterfield County’s many programs and initiatives. Eleven volunteers recently received the President’s Volunteer Service Award for their exceptional service throughout 2010.

Katelyn Bryant and Jenna Powers earned the gold level, while Karen Adu, Shirley Arteaga, Marta Coma Augué, Chevelle Clarke, Alice Humphrey, Thomas Keenan, Norrell Mason, Shenile Miles and Jessica Salvia achieved the bronze level.

Established in 2003, through the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation, the award is given to children aged 5-14, young adults aged 15-25, adults 26 and older, and families or groups who demonstrate a sustained commitment to volunteer service over the course of 12 consecutive months.

The gold level is awarded to those who serve the following minimum hours: kids, 100; young adults, 250; adults, 500; and families or groups, 1000.

The bronze level has the following criteria: kids, 50 to 74 hours; young adults, 100 to 174 hours; adults,100 to 249 hours; and families or groups, 200 to 499 hours.

 “This award is a prestigious national honor that recognizes the valuable contributions of volunteers,” said Kathy Perun, volunteer coordinator for the Chesterfield-Colonial Heights Department of Social Services. “This is a great honor for our volunteers and we’re very proud to join the president in acknowledging their achievement.” 

Recipients were recognized at the Chesterfield-Colonial Heights Department of Social Services’ Annual Volunteer Recognition ceremony in May. They received a personalized certificate of achievement, a congratulatory letter from President Barack Obama, a congratulatory letter from the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation and an official President’s Award pin.

“Words cannot express the gratitude we have for our volunteers,” Perun said.
