Wow! Nominated for an Award

I just found out I've been nominated by the the Arlington OEM for the 2012 Jack Colley Citizen Corps Award, the highest honor awarded to a Texas Citizen Corps volunteer and only the second year it is to be awarded. Recipient will be announced June 15th at the Texas Unites Conference in San Antonio.  Because so many other volunteers throughout the state put in so much more time and effort, I have no expectation whatsoever of "winning," nonetheless: Wow!
