The Community Foundation for the Twin Tiers (CFTT) announces that nominations for the William “Bill” Ransom, III Community Service Award are now being accepted. 

William “Bill” Ransom, III passed away on July 10, 2014 after a long and courageous battle with cancer. He was a Valley businessperson and was extremely active in his community. Bill served on many boards and committees and always provided leadership and vision to all the organizations with which he was involved.  The Fund was established in his name to honor his steadfast commitment and dedication to making the community a stronger and better place in which to live, work, and enjoy life. 

The William “Bill” Ransom, III Community Service Award will be given to someone who exemplifies Bill’s beliefs and who gives their time, commitment and leadership to the Valley community of Waverly, Sayre and/or Athens. It was created at CFTT by the Waverly Rotary Club in Bill’s memory; many community groups, businesses, family, and friends for whom Bill had an impact have contributed to the fund, enabling it to be large enough to give this award annually.
