Steel Magnolia Nomination Deadline Extended

July 2, 2010

CONTACT: T. DUANE GORDON 513-424-7369 (mobile 513-593-4860)

The deadline has been extended one month to nominate Middletown and West Chester-area residents for the second annual Steel Magnolia Award.

Women who have overcome obstacles to positively impact the greater Middletown and West Chester communities have the opportunity to earn recognition as Steel Magnolia Award recipients in the program funded by the AK Steel Foundation and administered by the Middletown Community Foundation. Up to 10 awards are given annually, limited to no more than one recipient per AK Steel U.S. location per year. Each recipient designates a $1,000 donation to an eligible charity of her choice.

The award honors women of all ages who have faced personal adversity and have shown exceptional strength, courage, compassion and leadership through their work in support of their communities.

Last year’s Middletown honoree was Tammy L. Robert, who selected Hands and Feet, a home repair project administered by Berachah Baptist Church for Middletown families in need, to receive the award’s $1,000 prize. Last year’s West Chester-area honoree was Etta J. Caver of Fairfield, who chose Citizens Against Domestic Violence for her prize.

Nominations, which should take the form of an essay of 500 words or less and be from the greater Cincinnati-Dayton region, must be submitted to the Middletown Community Foundation no later than Friday, July 30. Association with AK Steel is not a requirement for nomination and will have no bearing on the nominee’s consideration.
