Heart of Community Award
This award honors a person or organization that has given beyond the limits of ordinary activity. The award is earned by one whose life is shaped by the mysterious power of the human heart, who believes this to be true:
"The heart sees as the eyes cannot. It guides as intelligence cannot. It leads as strength cannot. The heart transforms knowledge into wisdom, brings focus to passion, and effect to commitment. The heart surpasses self, illuminates darkness, and inspires excellence. As we release the heart, fear fades, and our best, as one or many, stands clear before us." - Author Unknown
This award was first given in 2002 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Women 4 Women. Recipients are recognized for their service and dedication to the community as a whole.
