Community Foundation Honors Donors Dedication 2009: Staff Reports

Community Foundation honors donors dedication

Staff Reports • May 30, 2009 ZANESVILLE – Driven to make the community a better place, three local individuals were honored for their dedication
and significant contributions to a notable charity organization. The community gathered Friday evening at Park Central (formerly Armco Park) for the Muskingum County Community Foundation’s 15th annual Donor Recognition and Award Banquet. Three big names at the center of the event were Carl “Mick” Archer, Don L. McKendry and Dr. William Stewart, who received wooden artwork created by the late Ray Thomas. Archer and McKendry were the recipients of the Thomas Community Service Award, given annually to individuals who have made a contribution of time and effort that is essential to the success of a project or organization. The awards are plates of Muskingum County figured walnut made in 1993 by Thomas, founding president of the MCCF. Archer was honored for his 50 loyal years with the Dresden Volunteer Fire Department, and McKendry was recognized for being instrumental in assembling the John and Annie Glenn Museum Foundation’s Board of Trustees. Dr. Stewart was unable to attend, but the MCCF announced him as the recipient of the Bob Beam Award. Named for J. Robert Beam, third president of the MCCF and founding trustee emeritus, this honor is given to an individual or organization that has made extraordinary efforts in support of the MCCF.
Stewart’s dedication to the Foundation’s Scholarship Central and GEAR UP programs was highlighted, as well as his longtime ACT test preparation tutorials.
