ANNOUNCING THE GEORGE & DOROTHY WALTON AWARD
Nominations Accepted October 1st – October 31st
The nomination period for The George & Dorothy Walton Award is October 1st – October 31st. The Walton Award is named for George & Dorothy Walton, a couple of the American Revolution. Their relentless efforts and generous service left a lasting mark on the state of Georgia and, more locally, the CSRA-area. They were lifelong public servants who humbly served their community, seeking no recognition or praise.
AP Wealth Management presents this award annually in February to a local couple who exemplify the legacy and values of George and Dorothy Walton. The winning couple will receive a physical award and are invited to choose a local 501(c)(3) organization to receive a substantial monetary donation given in honor of the winning couple.
