(WPTA) - The host of 21Alive’s INsight program will soon be taking home a prestigious volunteer service award honoring his years of community work.
Tony Betton Jr. will be honored with the President Joseph R. Biden Lifetime Achievement Award and Presidential Volunteer Service Award medals during the Premiere Coalition Partner’s Association’s banquet on Saturday, October 21.
The award honors people and groups that give more than 4,000 hours of volunteering. The award will be presented by Dr. Beverly Kee later this month on behalf of the Points of Light, AmeriCorps, President Biden, and Vice President Kamala Harris.
