(Jefferson City, MO) – Lieutenant Governor Mike Parson is seeking nominations for the 2018 Lieutenant Governor’s Senior Service Award. The Lieutenant Governor’s Senior Service Award was enacted in 2005 to promote and highlight the positive accomplishments that Missouri’s senior citizens continually provide to their local communities.

“As an advocate for Missouri’s seniors, I am proud to recognize seniors all across our state for the work they do in their communities,” said Lieutenant Governor Parson. “The accomplishments of our state’s seniors often go unnoticed, and I intend to celebrate their accomplishments and thank them for helping to making Missouri a better place. I encourage all Missourians to nominate a deserving senior for this award. Our goal is to recognize a senior from every county in Missouri,” Parson said.

Nominations are now being accepted. Go to the Office of Lieutenant Governor’s website at ltgov.mo.gov and nominate a senior.
