Melissa Payne of First Citizens Bank was recognized Thursday night as the United Way of Central Kentucky's volunteer of the year.
In announcing the honor at the Volunteer Thank You Event at Nolin RECC, Payne's work was said to embody "the spirit of volunteerism and selflessness, and is a true, shining example of the United Way movement."
Now an annual award, it has been named for Nelson Kelley, who invested 15 years in service to the local United Way. He also came forward to assist in the presentation.
The local United Way also announced its new Community Impact Award for a volunteer whose efforts are reflected by their company's excellence in its overall campaign. That honor went to Dawn O’Donnel of Fischbach USA.
