The Corporation for National and Community Service honored 13 outstanding national service participants from across the country at the 2005 National Conference on Volunteering and Service. Each honoree received a Spirit of Service award in recognition of their outstanding service and contributions to their communities. The awards were part of the closing ceremony of the three-day national conference, which brought together 2,500 leaders of volunteer and national service sectors. Participants from each of the federal corporation’s three programs-Senior Corps, AmeriCorps, and Learn and Serve America-were honored along with UPS, which received the first-ever Corporate Spirit of Service award for its outstanding support of national service and volunteering.
