BECKLEY - The YMCA of Southern West Virginia recognized a couple for their community service.
The organization hosted it's annual Spirit of Beckley Breakfast Tuesday morning at the Black Knight Country Club. The event officially kicked off the month-long fundraising campaign for the "Y" that helps support youth programs in the area.
The recipients of this year's award were Jerry and Sherry Rose. Their daughter, who served as chair of the Spirit of Beckley Committee, said she felt her parents deserved the recognition.
"We are just so thrilled that the Y is honoring my parents with this great award," said Heather Zickefoose, the Rose's daughter, "We're just thrilled and we think that they're very deserving. I think they are. They have worked in the community for over 50 years and have taught thousands of children."
The award will be presented on December 9th at the Raleigh County Convention Center.
