2018 Community First Award winners

Cleveland State Community College is currently accepting nominations for its Fourth Annual Community First Awards and Gala to honor individuals who have a passion for giving back to the communities they serve. The Community First Awards will recognize those individuals who go above and beyond in their work and service to others.

The Community First Awards Gala is sponsored by Southeast Bank and will be held on Thursday, March 28, at 6:30 p.m. in the L. Quentin Lane Center. Dinner will be provided, and business attire is requested.

Nominations will be sought in nine different categories: Arts, Business, Education, Public Service, Volunteer Service, Non-Profit Leadership, Healthcare, Student Leadership and Philanthropy. Nominations are open to the public, and the nomination form is available online at 
mycs.cc/communityfirstawards until Jan. 19. The winners of each category will be announced on March 2; however, the college will keep the name of its most prestigious award, the Community First Person of the Year, a surprise until the night of the event.

Anyone living in Cleveland State’s five-county service area is eligible to receive a Community First Award. For more information, contact Cindy Dawson at (423) 614-8700 or email her at
