NOMINATE A COMMUNITY SERVANT  

The D. Ray Wilson Volunteer Service Award is presented annually during the prayer breakfast to the candidate who has contributed to the greater good within the greater Elgin community by voluntarily serving others’ physical, emotional, intellectual or spiritual needs. Seeing a need for a prayer breakfast in the Fox Valley area, D. Ray Wilson (1926 - 2003) established one at Judson University in 1989. Since Wilson was well known in the community for his tireless hours of volunteering, the D. Ray Wilson Volunteer Service Award was begun in his honor after his death in 2003.
