News seeks outstanding citizens nominations

Do you know someone who goes above and beyond in their duties to their church, community, school or civic organization?

If so, the Dawson Community News would like to hear about these ‘Outstanding Citizens' of Dawson County.

Nominations are being accepted for the Jan. 25 edition of the news that will include a special section to pay tribute to Dawson County's Outstanding Citizens of 2011.

"There are people in the community who go above and beyond and don't receive any recognition. Those are the people we are looking for and believe deserve to be honored," said Stephanie Griffin, Dawson Community News editor.

Last year's ‘Outstanding Citizens' included a teen who volunteers with several service organizations, the founder of a ministry that targets remote river basins around the world and provides the people of the areas with necessities and a local man who continuously touches the lives of children in the county as a teacher, coach and mentor, among others.

"We hope the community can help us find some of these special residents who often times fly under the radar," Griffin said.

The deadline for nominations is Jan. 11.

Nominations can be mailed to P.O. Box 1600, Dawsonville, GA 30534, e-mailed to or faxed to (706) 265-3276.

Please include your name and contact information along with the person you are nominating.
