Works’ Volunteers Receive 2016 President’s Volunteer Service Award

NEWARK, Ohio — The Works: Ohio Center for History, Art & Technology recently honored its dedicated volunteers during a recognition dinner and awards ceremony. From assisting guests, helping with special events, or working behind the scenes, volunteers are involved in every aspect of the museum. The Works is fortunate to have a dedicated team of more than 100 adult and teen volunteers.

In recognition of their generous service, several volunteers received the 2016 President’s Volunteer Service Award. This award was established in 2003 by The President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation to recognize the valuable contributions volunteers are making in our communities over the period of one year. The President’s Volunteer Service Award is an ideal way to thank and honor Americans who, by their demonstrated commitment and example, inspire others to engage in volunteer service. The Works also honors volunteers who reach monumental hours of service over an extended amount of time through the museum’s special Cumulative Service Achievement Award.

Bronze: Adults: 100-249 hours – Mary Eikelberry, Rita Squires

Silver: Adults: 250-499 hours – Mike Gray, Harvey Tung
