Mayor Woodfin attended the awards ceremony to honor the 13 award honorees. He himself was a Vulcans Community Awards honoree back in 2014 when we was awarded the title of Game Changer. Here’s what he had to say:

… I have a personal appreciation for the efforts of the individuals honored this evening. Vulcan was a working god, and in his pose with outstretched arm, he inspects his handiwork to ensure that the spear he has forged is straight and true. In their many accomplishments, tonight’s honorees embody Vulcan’s inspirational work ethic — to seek their full potential as individuals in service to the broader community.
