The 2010 Community Asset/Spirit of the West awards were presented Saturday night at the Best Western Hilltop House Hotel.
The second annual event garnered 44 nominations with recipients ranging from county councilors and Kiwanians, to a middle school student and one spectacular senior citizen.
Los Alamos High School student Corbin Pfeffer and 91 year old Lorin Cox were selected for the first-time presentation of the Director’s Award.
The Director’s Award is selected by those recipients in attendance for the evening to provide high praise for accomplishments that have demonstrated the assets motto of, “Take a second, make a difference.”
Cox has been a volunteer at the Casa Mesita Thrift Store for more than 20 years, assisting in adding more than a million dollars to the do-good dollars. Cox volunteers 24 hours a week and walks two to three miles a day to keep fit.
Pfeffer, a 17-year-old senior at LAHS, has spent three years building homes during spring break with the United Church of Los Alamos. Pfeffer is not a member of the church, he just believes in the mission of the work, which is providing homes for those less fortunate. Pfeffer attended the first year after his friend Alex Denevers invited him. He has donated his last three spring break weeks to building a better future for his fellow man.
