Thirteen Camden County residents have been honored for their selfless contributions to improving their community at the 2021 Camden County Freedom Medal Ceremony. The award, created by the Board of Commissioners in 2001, is presented to civic leaders who demonstrate ideals and actions that reflect the principles of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
“Each year we seek input from the community to help us identify county residents who exemplify the values and ideals of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,” said Commissioner Director Louis Cappelli, Jr. “This process always brings forth incredible stories of selflessness and sacrifice, but in response to a global pandemic with serious local ramifications, this year’s recipients have surpassed all expectations. This year we are honoring 13 selfless individuals who have made significant, and in many cases unprecedented, contributions to their communities.”
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s ceremony is virtual.
