The Corcoran Community Foundation is seeking to honor deceased members of the Corcoran community who have made great contributions to the City of Corcoran. The Corcoran Community Foundation Memorial Wall will be located to the north side of the Corcoran City Pool at the Recreation Association of Corcoran.
A committee has been formed and will be accepting applications until the Tuesday, November 15 deadline. Two individuals will be chosen annually and a plaque will mounted on the Memorial Wall during an unveiling ceremony in the spring of 2020.
Applicants will be chosen based on a points system. Criteria in place for the award will be awarded a certain amount of points. Those nominated can be born in Corcoran and continued to reside in town for a majority of their lives or local citizens not born in Corcoran but who have resided in town for most of their lives.
Nominees may also just work in Corcoran but have contributed greatly to the city. Clubs, organizations and/or boards that the nominees sit on or were a part of will also be recognized. Nominees’ activities within the city of Corcoran are also counted as well as the number of years they volunteered for each activity and that includes any leadership roles or positions they may have served in. Military service will also be included in the decision.
All nominations submitted will be considered by the Foundation Memorial Wall Committee, which is an ad-hoc committee of The Corcoran Community Foundation. Duplicate or incomplete applications will not be accepted.
Applications are available in this week’s Corcoran Journal and hard copies are available at The Corcoran Journal office, 1040 Whitley Avenue. Completed applications can be turned into The Journal or the Corcoran Chamber of Commerce before the Friday, Nov. 15 deadline.
For more information call The Corcoran Journal at 992-3115 or the Corcoran Chamber of Commerce at 992-4514.
