The Community Fabric Awards recognizes individuals and businesses who have demonstrated outstanding initiatives to improve the community while inspiring others to do the same. It also honors educators for showing excellence in leadership. Past winners for the Individual Leadership Award include Ward and Smith attorneys Troy Smith, Jr. and David Ward, Jr.
Net proceeds for the online event benefit the Craven Community College Foundation, which provides financial support to students through scholarships and funding for programs, equipment, new and emerging initiatives, facilities, and other priorities on the New Bern and Havelock campuses. To date, the Community Fabric Awards has netted more than $460,000 in support of the Foundation's mission.
