HAGERSTOWN, MD, UNITED STATES, May 20, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — Horizon Goodwill held its 69th annual Power of Work awards ceremony on May 8, 2024, at the Newman Auditorium at Robinwood Center, Hagerstown, MD. This prestigious event honors the exceptional efforts of individuals, businesses, and organizations that support Horizon Goodwill’s mission to eliminate barriers to social mobility across its four-state territory.

Each year, the Power of Work Awards Program acknowledges the dedication and contributions of our participants and community partners. A common theme woven through this year’s event was the importance of meeting people where they are, a principle at the heart of everything Horizon Goodwill does.

During his closing remarks, President and CEO David Shuster stated, “It’s about fostering a culture of inclusivity, compassion, and respect—a culture that embraces the inherent worth of every individual. Your stories inspire us to reach higher, dream bigger, and keep inventing a brighter future for all.”

The event was attended by a multitude of local, county, and state representatives, who presented Certificates of Appreciation to individual award winners. Sarah Flammang, the Maryland Deputy Secretary of Service and Civic Innovation, was also on hand to recognize Vincent Gray and Christopher Keane as inaugural Maryland Service Year Participants for their outstanding contributions.

This year’s ceremony also featured recognition of our outgoing Board Members, Sila Alegret-Bartel, Dustin Watson, and Marion Mitchell, as well as a moment of silence in honor of Dolores Harmon, who sadly passed during the final year of her term.
