Celebrating Volunteerism and Community Impact
The Junior League of Collin County Excellence In Volunteer Service Awards honors nonprofit organizations and individuals who have greatly impacted the lives of those in Collin County. Recipients are chosen by members of the Junior League of Collin County Community Advisory Board, and are honored at the Excellence In Volunteer Service Awards event each spring.
During the 2015 Excellence In Service Awards, the Junior League of Collin County debuted a new award, Spirit of Collaboration. As an organization that places a high value on collaboration, it is fitting to identify those in the community who embrace working cooperatively to serve those in need in Collin County. Collaboration is integral to building successful partnerships and identifying solutions that improve lives as well as drive innovation to achieve shared goals. The Junior League of Collin County were proudly honored to award Mayor Harry LaRosiliere with the first Spirit of Collaboration Award.
Collin County is one of the fastest growing counties in America with more than 850,000 people in 31 cities/towns. Volunteers make Collin County stronger, more vibrant, and improve the community. We ask that you partner with the Junior League of Collin County in recognizing an individual volunteer or organization that is making a difference in our community. Community leaders and volunteers will be present to share in the recognition and celebration of these volunteers’ contributions to the community. The awards for last year were announced at the Excellence In Volunteer Service Awards on April 7, 2016.
