Owens Alumni Association Accepting Nominations For Outstanding Service Award Celebration, April 22

Owens Community College's Alumni Association is recognizing the tremendous contribution that area police, fire and emergency medical professionals make to Northwest Ohio's surrounding communities by hosting the second annual Outstanding Service Awards. The recipients will be honored as part of a community celebration on Friday, April 22.

The College's Alumni Association is presently accepting nominations for the Outstanding Service 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 by Wednesday, March 30. The award is not limited to a single recipient, and the College's Alumni Association encourages the nomination of more than one person when teamwork was the key element in their success.

"Owens Community College's Alumni Association is proud to again honor our brave police, fire and emergency medical professionals for their dedication to making our lives safer," said Janet Meacham, Owens President of the Alumni Association. "Our nation would not be experiencing freedom and safety as we know it without their selfless acts of public service."

The three awards, which will be presented at the community celebration, are within the categories of Police Officer, Firefighter and Emergency Medical Technician. Selection criteria will be based upon a nomination process with candidates demonstrating exceptional service related to dedication, ingenuity, bravery, special skills and/or assistance during a unique situation.
