Tusculum College is looking for women who have made a significant impact in the life of the community and have not been widely recognized for it. Nominations are being sought for the annual Woman of Courage Award.
Nominations for the award should include not only the individual’s name, but also a narrative and any additional information about why the person is deserving of the award (i.e. what significant contribution the nominee has made to the community) and a person(s) or organization(s) to contact for more information about the nominee.
Criteria are that the applicant must demonstrate a long-term commitment to improving the local community, must exhibit efforts to change their community and world in a positive way, must reside in Greene County, must be a female and may not be a member of the Tusculum College Center for Civic Advancement. In addition, she may not be an immediate family member of any student involved in the award process.
Sponsored by the Center for Civic Advancement, the award was first presented in 2004. The project provides students practical experience in research, interviewing, planning and organizing events, as well as working together to achieve a common goal in bringing recognition to a deserving individual. Students will also explore the gender dynamics that have contributed to the nominees’ lives.
Nominations with the nominee’s name, address, phone number and a few paragraphs about why they are deserving of the award should be sent as soon as possible to: email@example.com or nominators may call 423.636.7300 ext. 5692.
Individuals making the nominations are asked to please include their contact information so they can be reached if more information is needed. The deadline for entries is 5 p.m. on Monday, February 22.
