This award is bestowed upon an individual who has made a contribution to their community in an outstanding manner through voluntary heroic, civic, benevolent service, or by organizing or participating in community activities.

“Sneed has shown outstanding patriotism over the past 22 years with his annual flag raising event in honor of those Americans who lost their lives in the terrorist attack on 9/11,” a DAR press release said.
