2019 Community Champion Awards Recognizing Those Who Give Back At a Community Champion Awards ceremony on April 20, the Dublin Chamber of Commerce and Dublin City Schools recognized more than 220 outstanding students and staff for exemplifying the best of volunteerism, character, leadership and a sense of caring and responsibility for others. Each Community Champion Award honoree received a limited-edition medal, as well as a gift bag filled with goodies and gift certificates from area businesses. In addition, one student in each grade K-11 received $100 in a 529 plan account, and 12 seniors received $1,000 or $500 scholarships. A Dublin City Schools staff member, Stephen Dickman, was awarded $500 to use for a school project of his choice.  We thank all of our Community Champion Award honorees. Without your commitment to the betterment of our community, Dublin would not be the great place that it is to live, work and do business.
