ELI to Graduate 100 Women, Girls and Honor 9 Volunteers; Keynote by Judge Kimberly Esmond Adams
Fulton County Superior Court Judge Kimberly Esmond Adams to deliver keynote address to 100 women and girls at the ELI graduation Saturday 4/14/12 at the Fernbank Museum. Nine volunteers to be honored with the President's Volunteer Service Award.
ELI will also honor the following volunteers with the President’s Volunteer Service Award (PVSA), a national award issued by the US President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation and chaired by two-time Super Bowl Champion Darrell Green, with former U.S. Senators Bob Dole and John Glenn: Jillian Smith, Leo “Reggie” Smith, Nan Walker, Natasha Lyles, Nasha Snipes, Erica Jenkins, Felicia Davis, and Wendy Miller. The organization is especially proud that its co-founder and Chairperson of the Board of Directors Lynita Mitchell-Blackwell will receive the President’s Call to Service Award, the highest PVSA honor, due to her work with ELI and its partner programs. “It is particularly timely that we take this opportunity to say ‘thank you’ to the people who have made ELI the success that it is today, as April 15 begins National Volunteer Week,” stated Ms. Evegan.
To be eligible to receive the PVSA, individuals must complete a minimum of 100 service hours. To receive the President’s Call to Service Award, an individual must complete a minimum of 4,000 service hours. “Each hour contributed has led to over 500 women and girls completing the ELI program in less than five years.”
