Announcing the 2022 Strobel Volunteer Awards finalists

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (April 1, 2022) – Hands On Nashville is pleased to announce the finalists for the 36th Annual Mary Catherine Strobel Volunteer Awards, presented by Jackson National Life Insurance Company. The 2022 Strobel Awards honor volunteers from 2021 – which saw a devastating flood, COVID-19 testing and vaccinations, and unprecedented need throughout our most vulnerable communities. Winners will be announced May 13 in a small ceremony that will be live streamed on HON’s social media channels.

“It was difficult to narrow this year’s phenomenal nominees down to just a few finalists,” said Hands On Nashville President and CEO Lori Shinton. “2021 was a challenging year, but the inspiring stories of these finalists show that Middle Tennessee is full of caring people who live out the spirit of the Volunteer State.”

The Strobel Volunteer Awards honor volunteers of all ages and backgrounds for significant community service achievements. This year’s celebration will be held with a small in-person reception, and community members are invited to visit hon.org/strobel2022 to show support and vote for their favorite stories of service between April 1-30.

A screener panel read more than 143 nominations this year and narrowed them down to three finalists in each category.
