LEXINGTON, Ky. (May, 20, 2009) Do you know a Senior Star in your community - someone who has remained engaged, active and served others well into his or her senior years? You have the opportunity to recognize those who inspire others by nominating that person for the University of Kentucky Sanders-Brown Center on Aging Foundation's Senior Star Award, given annually to honor those Kentuckians who exemplify graceful aging. Nominations are considered based on age, current engagement in society, service to community life, and other criteria. The deadline for nominations is May 31. The recipient will be honored at the foundation's annual dinner in October in Lexington and will be treated to a wonderful evening celebrating the achievements of research at the UK Sanders-Brown Center on Aging.
"The UK Sanders-Brown Center on Aging Foundation is fortunate to have a number of very deserving seniors nominated each year for the Senior Star Award," said Cheryl Feigel, Sanders-Brown Foundation board member and chair of the outreach committee. "Each of the nominees is a model for remaining active and involved during retirement years. Our award recipients epitomize the word 'involved.'"
