Krieg receives Dickmann Youth Community Service Award

ANDERSON — The Anderson Rotary Club recognized Liberty Christian High School Senior Justin Krieg for his unselfish commitment to others.

The Charles and Hazel Dickmann Youth Community Service Award honors students involved in serving their community.

Krieg, who has a long history of volunteerism in his community and church, will receive a $1,000 award, with the charity of his choice – Alternatives Inc. – receiving an equal amount as a donation.

Krieg started volunteering at Alternatives in the children’s programs at the age of 11. Krieg’s commitment to giving of himself also includes activities with Liberty Christian School and Madison Park Church of God.

Through the church and school he joined with other youth to serve families in crisis in Joplin, Mo., and the Dominican Republic. As a junior, Krieg was selected to be one of 36 students for the Madison County Youth Leadership Academy. In February, he was awarded the Stephen Hamer Servant Leadership Award for his commitment to serving others.

The awards are funded each year from the Charles H. and Hazel Dickmann Youth Community Service Fund held by the Madison County Community Foundation. This fund, created in 1998 by a $100,000 endowment, honors and encourages the volunteer efforts of young adults completing their high school education at a Madison County school.

The Madison County Community Foundation has distributed more than a half-million dollars in grants, scholarships, education initiatives and designated fund payments in 2013.
