2012 Spirit of Angelina Award Accepting Nominations
The Spirit of Angelina Award recognizes volunteers of Angelina County that are the backbone for many events, organizations, and the community. Because of them, many events and organizations exist and are successful. Volunteers donate their time, energy, and efforts to ensure events and organizations run smoothly. For all these reasons and numerous others, volunteers deserve the community’s appreciation and gratitude. The Spirit of Angelina Award is a way to honor volunteers from various organizations across the county.
