Fayetteville, Ga. (December 18, 2012) – Piedmont Fayette Hospital’s auxiliary volunteer services awarded the 2012 Spirit of Volunteerism Award to Fayetteville resident Georgia Knight.
The award is given annually to an auxiliary member who unselfishly demonstrates care and concern for others while volunteering. Volunteers are nominated by Piedmont Fayette’s Auxiliary members, employees and physicians, and the winner is selected by the Spirit of Volunteerism Committee.
Spirit of Volunteerism Committee member and 2008 award winner Jeannette Waits presented the award to Knight, who was recognized for her “above and beyond” spirit, friendliness, job knowledge, professionalism and dependability.
Knight has been a Piedmont Fayette volunteer for 15 years and currently serves at the East Lobby Information Desk and the Red Cross blood drives. In addition, Knight also volunteers with the American Red Cross and teaches Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) classes for Piedmont Fayette’s summer youth Auxiliary members.
Knight was among 11 individuals who were nominated for the award. The other nominees were: Ann Adams, Adele Andrews, Mary Brodersen, Bill Dirring, Linda Gable, Joan Ingram, Scott Jordan, Darleen LaBine, Sallie McGregor and Diane Minaberry.
