Our own Kim Coram and John Wiseman were recently honored as recipients of the N.C. Governor’s Volunteer Award, along with seven other awardees in Transylvania County. In addition, they were recognized as Medallion Award winners for 2020. Medallion Award winners represent the 20-25 most outstanding volunteers statewide so this is a very special recognition.

Kim and John have been actively involved in positive change in the community since they moved here several years ago. As noted in the Transylvania Times “Many people impact their communities, but Coram and Wiseman’s commitment to local action is unparalleled in our county as it crosses multiple organizations, social groups, and causes.”

Many of us who have worked with Kim and John have seen this commitment and dedication to positive social change first-hand. Rob Slover, one of those who nominated Kim and John for the recognition noted “ Kim and John are focused on making the world a better place through living their lives as an example.” Well said and so true!

Congratulations Kim and John on this wonderful and deserving recognition!
