“Every year the National Jefferson Awards Ceremony reminds us that America’s volunteer spirit is unique. People’s stories are inspirational. Today the Jefferson Awards is one of the nation’s largest multipliers of volunteers. From small beginnings in 1972, we’re now a national brand for service excellence and a dynamic force for impacting lives.”- Lee Carter, Past Jefferson Awards Board Member.
