Historical society seeks Hall of Fame nominations
Community members and organizations are invited to nominate a person or persons to be selected for the Mount Airy Historical Society’s 2020 Hall of Fame.
This year’s deadline for nominations is Nov. 15, and throughout the selection process, the committee will be looking at the nominees’ work, service, volunteerism, word or deed, over an extended period of time that made the community a better place for everyone.
The historical society will be considering candidates from the following fields: business, community-civic service, education, historical, humanitarian, political, religious, sports-recreational, or a general category.
The purpose of the Hall of Fame is to honor truly deserving people, living or deceased, of Mount Airy and the immediate surrounding areas.
In addition, they will be honoring those who were born in Mount Airy and went on to bring honor and glory to the community by their efforts, deeds, or life’s work outside of the area.
“By honoring these individuals, it is believed that their stories will inspire others to greater achievement and make everyone aware of the fabric that is woven into our home,” said Bonnie McElroy, a member of the Mount Airy Historical Society.
