“Too often lost among bitter partisan squabbling are the uplifting stories of people working selflessly to make a positive difference for North Carolina,” said Damon Circosta, executive director of the N.C.

Award recipients will be honored at a dinner celebration at the Raleigh Marriott City Center on Feb. 23.
