Volunteer Recognition

The Honorable Dale H. Harris Volunteer Hall of Fame

In recognition of CASA's 20th anniversary and to honor The Honorable Dale H. Harris, who initiated the establishment of the CASA program, CASA of Central VA established the Honorable Dale H. Harris Volunteer Hall of Fame. The first twelve volunteers were inducted at CASA's 20th Anniversary Celebration, which was held on March 19, 2010 at Oakwood Country Club.

The Hall of Fame was intended to recognize exemplary volunteers - board members as well as CASA volunteers - who had made significant contributions to the organization and to achieving positive outcomes for abused and neglected children. Each inductee is presented with an engraved, clear acrylic award; and his or her name is engraved on a perpetual plaque, which is displayed in the CASA Administrative Office.

In order to be inducted, volunteers must meet the following selection criteria:

  1. Must have served as a CASA volunteer or on CASA's Board of Directors for a minimum of three years.
  2. Must have demonstrated exemplary services as a volunteer, often going above and beyond the duties outlined in the job description.
  3. Must have made a measurable impact to improve the organization or the life of an abused and neglected child.
  4. Has received a written recommendation from a staff member or other volunteer familiar with the nominee's contributions.

Presidential Service Award Winners

About the Award


America has a long and proud tradition of volunteer service. Now more than ever, volunteers are renewing their commitment to helping others and making new connections that bring us closer together as families, as neighbors, as communities, and as a Nation.

The President's Council on Service and Civic Participation (the Council) was established in 2003 to recognize the valuable contributions volunteers are making in our communities and encourage more people to serve. The Council created the President's Volunteer Service Award program as a way to thank and honor Americans who, by their demonstrated commitment and example, inspire others to engage in volunteer service.

Recognizing and honoring volunteers sets a standard for service, encourages a sustained commitment to civic participation, and inspires others to make service a central part of their lives. The President's Volunteer Service Award recognizes individuals, families, and groups that have achieved a certain standard - measured by the number of hours of service over a 12-month period or cumulative hours earned over the course of a lifetime.

To date, the President's Council has partnered with more than 80 Leadership Organizations and more than 28,000 Certifying Organizations to bestow more than 1.5 million awards to the Nation's deserving volunteers.
