Pfeiffer is proud to recognize Warren '66 and Fran Knapp '80 (Hon.) of Asheboro, N.C., who have been awarded the 2013 Governor's Volunteer Service Award and the Governor's Medallion Award.
The Governor's Volunteer Service Award, first given in 1979, honors individuals, groups and businesses that make a significant contribution to their community through volunteer service. Any person, group, or business from the public, non-profit and private sector may be nominated.
The Governor's Medallion Award was first given in 2006, and recognizes the â€œtop 20â€ volunteers in the state. Medallion recipients are nominated at the county level and subsequently evaluated by a panel of community service leaders from across North Carolina. This award is only the second award to be presented to residents of Randolph County.
Specifically, Mr. and Mrs. Knapp were recognized for their work with the Randolph-Asheboro YMCA. They have saved the organization over $250,000 in consultant fees and helped raise $2.6 million to fund various programs and activities.
â€œPfeiffer extends a hearty congratulations to Warren and Fran Knapp on receiving the Governor's Volunteer Service Award and the Governor's Medallion Award,â€ said Pfeiffer President Michael C. Miller. â€œThe Knapps consistently promote the spirit of volunteerism within the local community, and we are proud of this tremendous accomplishment.â€
