Jefferson Awards finalists named


Fourteen individuals have been named finalists for the Toledo-Area Jefferson Awards, it was announced—They are Linda Bayer, Kristopher Brickman, Tom Dibling, Sally Goligoski, Viola Grzybowski, Cindy Kirk, Daniel LaValley, Marcy McMahon, Jay Mirrow, Toni Moore, Phyllis Morton, Martha Pituch, Stephen Taylor, and Jim Whiteman.


“They have each been selected as a finalist for this award due to their outstanding service to the community,” said Joseph Zerbey IV, president and general manager of The Blade. “Their contributions have made our region a better place to live for so many people. Now it’s time for us to honor them.”


Jefferson Award Judges Florence Buchanan, Thomas Backoff, Judy Seibenick, Ford Weber, Gary Willoughby, and P. Roger Parker, Jr., made the selections from a field of 42 nominees.


In 1972, The Jefferson Awards were founded by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Senator Robert Taft Jr., and Sam Beard. Their mission was to establish a nationally recognized award to honor outstanding individuals who are committed to public service.


The 14 finalists will be honored at the annual Jefferson Awards Ceremony and Breakfast. At the ceremony, all 14 finalists will be honored, and the top four local winners announced.


The names and nomination packages of the four regional winners will be sent to the national selection committee. The American Institute of Public Service will select one nominee to attend The Jefferson Awards National Celebration of Service in Washington, D.C.


The local Jefferson Awards Ceremony and Breakfast will take place Thursday, March 13, 2014 at The Premier Banquet Hall, 4480 Heatherdowns Blvd. Doors will open at 7:30 a.m., and breakfast will be served at 8 a.m. Tickets are available for $15 each, or $125 for a table of ten, and may be purchased online at toledoblade.com/jeffersonawards, or by calling 419-724-6074.
