Crosby Scholar student receives the 2010 Governor’s Medallion Award!
Monday, December 6, 2010
The Crosby Scholars Program is proud to announce that Cy Fogleman, Glenn High School freshman and local Crosby Scholar, was nominated for and won the Governor's Award for Outstanding Volunteer Service for his efforts in establishing Project Brotherly Love. Project Brotherly Love works to supply new parents at Forsyth Medical Center's NICU with the essentials they need for their premature babies and came from Cy's personal experience with his brother's premature birth. The Governor’s Medallion Award, which is the statewide volunteer service award, is given by the NC Commission on Volunteerism and Community Service to only 20 volunteers from across the state each year.
The recipients, including Cy, were honored last month by Governor Perdue at a ceremony in the State Capitol where they each received a medallion and a certificate in recognition of their service. Cy's parents, Tara Stokes, from Crosby Scholars, and Amy Lytle, from HandsOn Northwest NC, who serves as the coordinator of the Forsyth County awards, were able to attend both the ceremony and the reception which followed in the Governor's mansion. This was the second time in three years that a Forsyth County volunteer has won a Medallion Award. As a Program requirement, the 6,200 middle and high school Crosby Scholars perform community service each year. Cy Fogleman; however, exemplifies our many students who consistently exceed the minimum service requirement.
