NRV Leading Lights 2020 Celebration
From Christina McIntyre
For 11 years, there has been a formal banquet held each April, the month of the tragedy. As we all know, that was not possible this year due to the Covid-19 virus. So instead, we are holding tonight’s virtual banquet. Over the 12 years of our existence, 625 volunteers will have been honored and $72,000 donated back into our local communities. This is done via the charity of choice of the 100 High School, Collegiate, and General public Distinguished Award recipients. We are trying to shine a light on “neighbors helping neighbors”, and to recognize extraordinary citizens throughout the New River Valley who give of themselves to continually improve our community.
