United Way Recognizing Winners in the Community

United Way of Hancock County’s has announced its annual theme is “United We Win” and will begin a recognition program to celebrate local citizens. Nominees must be affiliated with a United Way funded program as a client, volunteer, student, employee, donor, nonprofit or business leader. Each selected winner will receive a plaque and will be featured in a video on social media.  

The first award was presented to Avah Enright, a student at Jacobs Primary School. She was nominated by her teacher Anthony DeRose who said, “Avah is one of the most caring students that I have ever had in a classroom! She is a hard working student, who rises above challenging situations. She always has a smile even when she is unsure of herself. She embodies the model Jacobs' student and is loved by all students in the classroom.”  Jacobs is a “Leader in Me” school. Leader in Me is partially funded by United Way. A short video of her presentation can be found at the online nomination page

Nominations are being accepted on the organization’s website from now until August 1. Up to 10 individuals will be selected and will be surprised by an award presentation from August 1 through November 15.
