Coleman award nominations open in Edmonton
From Gaye Shaw, Executive Director
Edmonton Metcalfe Chamber of Commerce
Shortly after revitalization in 1994, one of the very first major projects the Edmonton-Metcalfe County Chamber of Commerce established was a community service award. After some investigation it was learned that most communities bestowed some type of annual award on at least one of its deserving citizens.
After much deliberation, the chamber board of directors at that time, decided to establish the Jim C. Coleman Community Service Award to honor a Metcalfe County person who closely exemplified the service orientation of the late Jim C. Coleman.
Several noteworthy community leaders who received this award such as Ruth Ennis, Judge Cass Walden, Nell Van Zant, Dr. Hays, Kenneth Branstetter, Harold Chambers Jennie Spears, Virginia Janes, and Ruth Butler are no longer with us physically but their influence and inspiration will linger always.
Others such as recipients Lucy Forbes, Kathy Frick, Royce Smith, Wendell Stephens, Mary Shive, Charlotte Atkins, Judy "Jessie" Crabtree, Freeda Reece, Barbara Branstetter, Judge Tom Emberton, Susan Chambers, Kay Harbison, Emory Kidd, Lisa Boswell, and Martha Bragg continue to leave an indelible mark on this community. Their volunteerism and service are an example for younger Metcalfe County Residents to emulate.
This year marks the 26th consecutive year the Edmonton-Metcalfe County Chamber of Commerce is seeking nominations from the public for this prestigious award. A Chamber Coleman Award Selection Committee will choose the Annual Jim C. Coleman Community Service Award Winner.
One does not have to be a member of the Edmonton-Metcalfe County Chamber of Commerce to nominate a person for this award. Nominations will be accepted until Friday, November 6, 2020 at noon. Submit nominations to PO Box 42, Edmonton, KY 42129.
