These are the winners of the 2016 Inspire by Example Awards, all of whom are named below. In the coming weeks, we'll be telling their stories one by one on the NPC blog so you can learn their unique backgrounds, contributions, and inner strengths that sustain their volunteer spirits. And of course, we'll be honoring them April 7 at the Inspire By Example awards celebration, where you'll have the opportunity to get inspired by them in person. Make sure to reserve your seat at this celebratory luncheon!
