Wednesday, May 30th, several groups and individuals from across Kentucky were honored for their volunteer and service contributions at the 23rd annual Governor’s Service Awards in Frankfort. The Lindsey Wilson College Bonner Scholars Program in Columbia was among the Group Service Award winners. The annual awards are coordinated by Serve Kentucky which is part of the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services. Serve Kentucky is designed to advance national service, volunteerism and civic engagement to improve lives, expand opportunity to meet the local critical needs of Kentucky residents and strengthen community capacity while creating healthy and resilient communities and exists to fulfill a federal mandate requiring states to establish a commission in order to receive funding through the Corporation for National and Community Service. The commission is a statewide, bipartisan group made up of 25 members appointed by the governor.
