This award will be given to recognize special volunteer achievement by either an individual or a non-profit organization. This award is given in memory of and in tribute to Jean Hudson Gano, a JLS member who died of breast cancer in May of 1997. Jean’s exemplary and extraordinary commitment to volunteerism, community service, and particularly to issues regarding women and children, was an inspiration to all those who were touched by her efforts.
Nominees from the communities of Berkeley Heights, Chatham, New Providence, and Summit are eligible for the award. Individual nominees should be women or men of high school age or above whose dedication and excellence in leadership has served their community through their volunteer efforts, either within the preceding year or as a long-term, on-going commitment. Organizations nominated should be those that benefit women and/or children within the past year and must supply verification of 501c3 status.
The award recipient will be honored at a future event, and the recipient’s name will be displayed on a plaque at the JLS Thrift Shop. Recipients will receive a $500 monetary award made possible by a generous gift given by Jean’s father, Mr. William Hudson.
