Caring Awards 

Background

 

Each year since 1992, student nominees have been solicited to receive two prestigious awards to embody the spirit of caring, volunteerism, and humanitarianism. Finalists are chosen for each award and invited to bring one guest and their nominator to an awards luncheon sponsored by Bank of America.

These esteemed awards have been made possible through the generosity and establishment of an endowment by Hugh Jones, friends of Albert D. Ernest, Jr. and Barnett Bank of Jacksonville, N.A. (now Bank of America) for the Albert D. Ernest, Jr., Caring Award and the Bill and Angie Halamandaris Caring Internship at the Heart of America Foundation in Washington, DC.
