Richardson Real Heroes wants to honor volunteers doing great work on behalf of Richardson, Richardson residents or the Richardson Independent School District. Nominations for the 2017 Real Heroes awards are open and can be submitted online through the group’s website.
The basic criteria:
- The service must benefit Richardson, it’s residents or schools
- The individual receives no monetary compensation for the service
- The individual does not receive significant public recognition for the service
- Elected officials are not eligible
More detailed criteria and the nomination form are on the Richardson Real Heroes website at: www.richardsonrealheroes.com.
“These volunteers are already heroes,” said Barbara Berthold, Real Heroes committee chairman. “We just want to recognize and honor them, their efforts and their organization in a public way. This is a chance to get public recognition for someone whose dedication might otherwise go unnoticed.
“Richardson does a great job of highlighting visible people who have made contributions to our city. We’re picking up the slack with the unsung heroes.”
Nominations will close at midnight Dec, 23, 2016.
Richardson Real Heroes is in its eighth year of operation and was founded and funded by The Richardson Coalition, a political action committee.
