Each year, the City of Rockford asks it’s residents, businesses and members of the community to nominate a person or group that has evidenced dedication, support and volunteerism in our shared community. People submitting nominations are asked to submit a Nomination Form explaining why they believe their nominee is deserving of the award.
This year, the City Council selected Laura Franklin as the 2020 Volunteer of the Year. Ms. Franklin is being honored for her extensive volunteerism in our Community, including her service on the Rockford Education Foundation, her role as President of the Rockford Greenfield Chamber of Commerce, and her service on the 1,000 Hearts Steering Committee supporting the Crow River Serve Day. Ms. Franklin also supports the Rockford Area Girl Scouts.
Congratulations, Ms. Franklin, and thank you for your hard work in our community.
