St. George National Award

The St. George National Award is presented to outstanding community volunteers in recognition of their distinguished service in achieving the American Cancer Society’s strategic goals. To be nominated, a volunteer must have served as a leader in community mission delivery and/or governance in more than one area of focus for a minimum of six continuous years and must have made a significant impact on our strategic goals and mission-driven programs.
