We congratulate Dale Sights for the 2008 Lifetime Achievement Award at the Leadership Evansville ceremonies held at the USI Cater Hall last night. There were 3 nominees for the 2008 Jefferson Awards winners, an award that recognizes outstanding community and public service. This year's Jefferson Awards winners are:
- Lisa and Patrick Phernetton, who have organized charity events for research on Prader-Willi syndrome and to build a group home for people who suffer from it. Their 11-year-old daughter, Mickey, has the condition, which causes sufferers to feel constantly hungry.
- Alfonso Vidal, co-founder of Hospitality and Outreach for Latin Americans, an organization that helps integrate Latinos into the Evansville community.
- Dale Sights, the volunteer CEO of the Women's Addiction Recovery Manor in Henderson.
One of these nominees will be selected to represent Evansville in Washington D.C. at the national Jefferson Awards' Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Award.
