Nominated by Superintendent of Schools Tim McGinnis, with whom Myers worked closely last year in orchestrating a commemorative week in the schools around Veterans Day, Myers award is in the Impact Adult category, one of approximately 16 winners.
“All I can say is I am so humbled by everything, and that I did not earn this award by myself,” Myers said in an e-mail.
“Whatever has been accomplished has been the result of many partnerships working together to accomplish common goals.”
Noting the number of community service organizations in Cadiz — Genesis Express (which won a group Governor’s Award several years ago), Relay For Life, Helping Hands, Lions Club, etc. — Myers said, “the award really should go to the community.”
“The award is not a one-person award,” Myers said, “I am just the fortunate one to be the one to bring it back to Cadiz — it belongs to all the wonderfully dedicated and caring volunteers of this one-of-a-kind community.”
