Photos of Denny Mihalinec interviewed for local Jefferson Award by ABC Action
News, Channel 28, WFTS, Tampa.
I want to thank those who nominated me for the
prestigious -Jefferson Award- I got a call from ABC Action News and they said
I had a handful of nominations from community leaders and citizens for ten
years of service to Pasco
County kids/families....I am honored to have been volunteer of the
year and citizen of the year in the past- But this was a complete
surprise to be acknowledged for ten years of service.... On my ten year
anniversary... I am ready for another ten years if God allows..

|In 1972, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, U.S. Senator Robert Taft, Jr. and
Sam Beard founded the American Institute for Public Service, a 501c3
public foundation, to establish a Nobel Prize for public and community
service - The Jefferson Awards.
The Jefferson Awards are presented on two levels: national and local. National award recipients represent a "Who's Who" of outstanding Americans. The national awards are given in five categories:
Past winners of the national award include Cesar Chavez, Jimmy Carter, Walter Chronkite, General Colin Powell, Arthur Ashe, Paul Newman, Lance Armstrong among many others.
On the local level, Jefferson Awards recipients are ordinary people who do extraordinary things without expectation of recognition or reward. By honoring the Jefferson Award recipients, it is the goal of the American Institute for Public Service to inspire others to become involved in community and public service.
By last count, the Jefferson Awards had 147 Media Partners in 93 communities, setting an all-time record. The Jefferson Awards is the nation's largest media partnership highlighting service to America.
