Juanita Ross Gray Community Service Award - Request For Nominations
In celebration of African American Awareness Month at the Denver Public Library, we will honor members of our community with two notable awards. They are the Juanita Ross Gray Community Service Award and the induction of a Coloradan into the Ford-Warren Branch Library "Blacks in Colorado" Hall of Fame.
To honor the memory of Juanita Ross Gray, a former Denver Public Library staff member and dedicated community advocate, the Ford-Warren Branch Library presents an award to an outstanding individual every February.
The Hall of Fame honor is bestowed upon a Coloradan who has been the first African American to accomplish a professional goal in their field and/or who has actively supported the African American community while achieving his or her goal.
We encourage you to nominate someone you believe is worthy of these awards. For the Juanita Ross Gray Community Service Award, we are equally interested in youth, ages 14-18, who are setting an example for all in our community.
The awards celebration will be held at the Ford-Warren Branch Library on Saturday, February 1, 2014 at 1:30 p.m.
The Juanita Ross Gray Community Service Award nomination form and "Blacks in Colorado" Hall of Fame nomination form must be completed and returned to Hannah Miles no later than 5 p.m. on Monday, December 2, 2013.
If you have any questions, please call Hannah Miles at 720-865-2045, or Terry Nelson at 720-865-2404.
