Owens Community College's Alumni Association is recognizing the contributions that area police, fire and emergency medical professionals and community leaders make to Northwest Ohio's surrounding communities by hosting the 10th annual Outstanding Service Awards.
The recipients will be honored as part of a community celebration on April 26.
The Alumni Association is currently accepting nominations for the awards. Area residents are invited to nominate an individual or individuals who have demonstrated exceptional service above and beyond the call of duty. Nominations need to be returned to the College's Office of Alumni Relations by March 8.
The award is not limited to a single recipient, and the Alumni Association encourages the nomination of more than one person when teamwork was the key element in their success.
The five awards, which will be presented at the community celebration, are within the categories of Outstanding Police Officer, Firefighter, Emergency Medical Technician, Service to Community and Community Spirit. Selection criteria will be based upon a nomination process with candidates demonstrating exceptional service related to dedication, ingenuity, bravery, special skills and/or to the community over a sustained period of time.
The awards celebration will begin at 8 a.m. in the college's Audio/Visual Classroom Center Rooms 121-128 on the Perrysburg Township campus.
Admission is free and the public is encouraged to attend, however, reservations are required.
For more information about the Outstanding Service Award Celebration, or the nomination process, contact the college's Alumni Relations Office at (567) 661-7410 or 1-800-GO-OWENS, Ext. 7410.
