League City Recognizes Citizen Service with the Art Hewitt Volunteer Spirit Award 
and the Above and Beyond Award

League City honored the Operations Coordinator of the League City Volunteers in Policing Program and one of the founding members of the League City Proud Organization and Holiday In the Park, at Tuesday’s City Council meeting.  

Bill Keogh was awarded the 2014 Art Hewitt Volunteer Spirit Award. Bill volunteers his time to oversee the Volunteers in Policing Program with the League City Police Department.  This past year alone he has donated 800 hours of his time volunteering with the program.  He was also instrumental in revamping the program to create new ways to track hours and assign tasks.  “Bill’s talents and time as a VIP member has strengthened the police department’s ability to assign volunteers to address quality of life issues and educate our citizens,” said League City Police officer Todd Young, who was one of the six people who nominated Bill.

Janice Hallisey was awarded the “Above and Beyond Award”.  Janice was one of a few citizens who helped form the League City Proud Organization and the Holiday in the Park Parade and Festival over 17 years ago.  The City has been a proud sponsor of the event for many years, as it’s one of the largest annual event held in League City.  Her dedication and the hundreds of man-hours she contributes to the event helps to create a festive holiday season in League City every year.  

Art Hewitt, who passed away in 2012, dedicated 60 years of his life to the League City community by serving as a League City volunteer firefighter and inspiring countless others to make a commitment to service in League City. The City of League City honors Hewitt and keeps his passion for volunteerism alive through the Art Hewitt Volunteer Spirit Award and by declaring August 30 of every year as League City Volunteer Appreciation Day.

Nominations for the Art Hewitt Volunteer Spirit Award were accepted through the City’s website for an award period of July 1, 2013 through June 30, 2014. Nominations were accepted for all volunteers (regardless of city of residence) involved in a City-related cause or project. The winners of the 2014 Art Hewitt Spirit Award were selected by a committee that included members of City staff. The committee also chose to recognize an outstanding long-term volunteer contribution this year with an “Above and Beyond” award.
