Angie Padgett is the type of individual you want in your community.  She can be found on many given days volunteering her time to the children in our school system.  She has an amazing heart of service!

Yesterday she was awarded the Silver Level Presidential Award for volunteering 336 hours in 29 classrooms in the 2017-18 school year. Angie is the first individual in the history of JA to achieve this level of status. Junior Achievement and the Cooperative Extension Service have an awesome partnership that strengthens the youth of our community.

Angie is pictured accepting her award with Mike Clark, DCPS Board Chair; Matt Robbins, DCPS Superintendent; Todd Anderson, DCPS Board Member; Dr. Tom Payne, DCPS Board Vice Chairman; Dale Stewart, DCPS Board Member; and Frank G. Riney, DCPS Board Member.

The U.S. PRESIDENTIAL VOLUNTEER SERVICE AWARD is a prestigious national honor that comes from the White House in recognition of sustained volunteer service. Established in 2003, under George W. Bush, and continuing in all subsequent presidencies to date, the U.S. PRESIDENTIAL VOLUNTEER SERVICE AWARD gives Presidential recognition to individuals, families and groups who have demonstrated a sustained commitment to volunteer service each year.

I know Angie personally and she is always asking what she can do for others.  She goes above and beyond for Owensboro-Daviess County and we are so blessed to have her right here in our town.

Keep Shining Angie!  We are so proud of your example!
