Jean Wilson (left) is the winner of Patrick Henry Community College’s first annual MLK Now Award. She received the award at the 2014 Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Luncheon, held Thursday, Jan. 23 in Frith Exhibit Hall at PHCC. She said, “I’m elated – I was surprised to receive this award. It was the biggest shock.” When asked why she does so much to help her community, she replied, “You do it because it needs to be done. I’m not one for words. I’m one for action.” Wilson has worked for PHCC for around 22 years. She coordinates the Alliance for Excellence program.
