Now Accepting Nominations for “Extra Mile Heroes”

November 1 is Extra Mile Day, and Mayor Jerry Marco wants to hear nominations from the public.

According to Extra Mile America, the organization coordinating this program, the purpose of Extra Mile Day is to celebrate the capacity everyone has to create positive change in their families, organizations, and communities by “going the extra mile. On Extra Mile Day, mayors of more than 500 cities across the nation will recognize three individuals or organizations in their local areas that “go the extra mile” in volunteerism and service.

On this November 1, Elkins will be one of those cities. Please submit nominations for this recognition to Mayor Marco by email. Your email should include:

  • The nominee’s name (can be a person or an organization from the Elkins area)
  • Two-to-four sentences describing why this person/organization was selected as an extra-mile change maker

Please submit nominations no later than October 20. Email nominations to the mayor’s office by clicking here or get in touch using the contact information below.
