KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – The Parks and Recreation departments for the City of Knoxville and Knox County held a Volunteer Awards Ceremony this morning to recognize those individuals who strive to make a difference in our community through recreation. The ceremony was followed by a luncheon sponsored by Dick’s Sporting Goods.

Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero and Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett presented the awards to each of the 25 winners who were nominated by their peers for the exemplary volunteer commitment they have demonstrated in our community.

“I consider it an honor to recognize our local volunteers who invest their personal time and resources in service to our community,” said Mayor Rogero. “They do this simply because they care.”

“Each of these outstanding volunteers deserves recognition for the time and energy they put in to making our community a better place to live,” said Mayor Burchett. “I appreciate all they do and thank them for their service to Knox County.”
