Fulton Water Resources Receives Major Service Honor | Print |

 

ATLANTA – The Water Services Division of Fulton County’s Department of Public Works was honored by the Georgia Association of Water Professionals (GAWP).  At the state organization’s annual meeting last month in Savannah, the employees of the Fulton Water Services Division received the President’s Volunteer Service Award for the hours contributed to the community.  
 
Fulton County was presented with the Silver Level Award after employees performed in excess of 500 hours of community service over a 12 month period from April 2015 to April 2016.  The Silver Level Award is given to organizations whose members put in between 500 and 999 hours, with each employee contributing at least 25 hours annually to community efforts.   Over that 12 month period, the division’s staff strived to strengthen their communities through volunteer services with a special service commitment to Environmental Stewardship.  Members of the Water Services staff participated in community cleanup efforts in addition to serving on various GAWP committees and preparing conference presentations.
 
“We are so proud that our team continues to give of themselves and donate their time to making the community a better place,” says David Clark, Fulton County Director of Public Works. “Giving back to our community is big part of the culture of Water Services and one that we are proud to see our team continue this proud tradition.”
 
The President’s Volunteer Service Award recognizes and celebrates Americans who make a positive impact as engaged and deeply committed volunteers. The Award enables community organizations – as Certifying and Leadership Organizations – to demonstrate their gratitude by joining with the President of the United States to thank their most dedicated volunteers.  The President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation launched the President's Volunteer Service Award in 2003 to recognize the importance of volunteers to America's strength and national identity.  The program continues as an initiative of the Corporation for National and Community Service, managed in partnership with Points of Light, an international nonprofit with the mission to inspire, equip, and mobilize people to take action to change the world.
