Nominations are requested from the Smyrna community for the 2019 Kenneth "Coon" Victory Lifetime Service Award
The award is presented annually to pay tribute to a Smyrna citizen who has distinguished him or herself by years of unselfish and dedicated volunteer service to the Smyrna community, either in youth and/or adult athletics or other civic and non-profit organizations.
The award is an ongoing tribute to Kenneth "Coon" Victory, a former Commissioner of Parks and Recreation and his family as a reminder of the years of volunteer contributions they have given to the Smyrna community. The award is also a reminder of how genuine dedication to community projects can help maintain the hometown spirit of working together to make dreams become realities.
"Coon" Victory proved that dreams can come true and that fast growing communities can maintain the special hometown atmosphere through volunteer service. Deadline for nominations is Thursday, November 14th by 4:30pm. The Parks Advisory Board will make the selection at the November Parks Advisory Board Meeting.
The Volunteer of the Year Dinner, recognizing the Lifetime Achievement Award winner, Volunteers of the Year for all of the Smyrna Parks & Recreation Youth and Adult Athletic Leagues, Coach of the Year, Parent of the Year, Young Leader of the Year and Business of the Year, will take place on February 21, 2020 at 6:30pm at the Smyrna Event Center.
