The Jefferson Awards Foundation helps bring attention to the people in our area who work hard for others, without expecting anything in return.
Outstanding citizens of any age are eligible to be nominated for this monthly award, and winners will have the chance to share information with the public about their cause.
Multimedia Journalist, Shelbey Roberts, is excited to feature Jefferson Award recipients and their stories as part of our regular news broadcast. Originally from Michigan, Roberts is a passionate writer and storyteller who has been working in news since 2011. She believes public service is an integral part of responsible citizenship. From volunteering to advocating for various causes, giving back allows communities to connect in uncharted ways. FOX 28 News at Ten celebrates those individuals who do just that.
If you know anyone who proudly gives back to our community, help us give them the recognition they deserve.
