CHRIS KEEN HEART OF AGAPE AWARD
The Chris Keen Heart of AGAPE Award was established in 2011 to recognize an individual or family affiliated with AGAPE who exemplifies the characteristics of compassion, humility, and hard work in support of AGAPE’s mission. The award’s namesake, Chris Keen, was a generous donor, volunteer, and member of AGAPE’s Kids Classic Leadership Committee. Chris left this life to be with God after a tragic boating accident on Old Hickory Lake in the spring of 2011.
The recipient should be an individual or family whose life best exhibits the characteristics of compassion, humility and hard work in support of AGAPE’s mission. The recipient may support any one of the agency’s programs (Adoption, Foster Care, Counseling, Administration, Development). Candidates may be nominated by any current member of the AGAPE staff or board of directors, or any current member of the AGAPE Kids Classic Leadership Committee. Retired staff members, board members, and all volunteers are eligible to receive the award.
The award is presented annually at the celebration dinner following the AGAPE Kids Classic Golf Tournament.
