Jane Harris Receives Sertoma's Service to Mankind Award


Jane Harris Selected as First Ever Repeat Winner of the Sertoma Club's Service to Mankind Award




Each year the Sertoma Club of Kingsport solicits letters of recommendation for its coveted Service to Mankind Award. An independent committee reviews the recommendations and selects a winner based on that person making a marked difference in the Greater Kingsport community without regard for personal gain or recognition. Jane Harris was selected as the 2012 Sertoma Club of Kingsport's Service to Mankind Award winner. Jane is the only recipient in the organization's history to win the award twice.


The United Way of Greater Kingsport (UWGK) nominated Jane for this award due to her passion and commitment for making our community a better place to live. She has worked close to 50 years in professional and volunteer roles, serving people from all walks of life with a cheerful heart, a giving spirit, integrity, and compassion. Jane has generously and without hesitation used her time and talent to help others.

She is an inspiration to all those who have the honor of knowing her. Jane epitomizes "service to mankind." The United Way of Greater Kingsport is sincerely appreciative that Jane chooses to volunteer her time with our organization and the many others she serves.

"In addition to helping many directly with dollars to support agency programs, the UWGK allows volunteers an opportunity to serve. Don't forget by enabling and empowering volunteers you increase your financial contributions many fold," said Jane.

Congratulations, Jane Harris.
