Murfreesboro resident Lori Woodard-Hoyt received the award for her extensive charity work with the Clinton’s Club, where she serves on the board of directors as vice president.
“I am truly honored and probably undeserving of this award,” said Hoyt, who is also the owner of the marketing and consulting firm, About Face Time.
Hoyt was nominated by Maria Arthur, also of Murfreesboro.
“(Hoyt) is a mother, daughter, sister, friend, business owner, cancer warrior and one of the nicest people you will ever meet,” Arthur said. “She advocates pay-it-forward and random acts of kindness and inspires others to do the same.”
The Set a Good Example Award was created by Dr. David Morris, managing doctor of Dynamic Medical.
“This award is a way for me to personally show the community that there are people, our very own friends and neighbors, who stand ready to offer selfless service to those in need,” Morris said.
Clinton’s Club is a nonprofit organization offering assistance to families who have children suffering with cancer. The charity’s services range from medical appointment support to grocery shopping.
The charity was created by Clinton Milliken, who was diagnosed with a form of brain cancer one month before his 5th birthday. He passed away Jan. 19, 2012, but the work he started is carried on by his friends and family.
