The Virginia Office on Volunteerism & Community Service each year gives out the Robert E. Wone Award for Exemplary Service. Cheryl Jennings of Hampton and Anthony Simpson of Richmond are past recipients and continue Robert’s spirit of volunteerism & service to the community.
The Robert E. Wone Award for Exemplary Service will be awarded to an AmeriCorps member who has exhibited the same dedication to community service and civic engagement as the award’s namesake.
Established in memory of Mr. Wone, the award will recognize an exemplary AmeriCorps member who has exhibited the same dedication to community service and civic engagement as did Mr. Wone, who served on the Governor’s Commission on Community and National Service from 2002-06.
He was a tireless activist and volunteer who advanced the interests of many charitable organizations. He also provided many hours of pro bono legal service to help others and was instrumental in establishing the Virginia Service Foundation. AmeriCorps program directors will nominate a member who exemplifies the mission of the Algernon Sydney Sullivan Foundation, of which Wone received an award upon graduation from the College of William and Mary in 1996. The Sullivan Foundation’s mission is to inspire young people to “lead lives of integrity, characterized by service above self and service to the community.”
