Volunteers were nominated by their peers in one of four star categories: youth, individual, faith-based and nonprofit volunteer program.

“These volunteers represent the countless hundreds of stars in our community stepping forward to volunteer to assure that vital community services and programs remain available to meet the needs of area residents and visitors,” Brinkley said. “It’s a huge honor to be able to shine the spotlight on them, even if it’s just for a moment to say thanks, and we appreciate the way you turn love into action to care for the community’s needs.”
