Rose Cologne Volunteer Recognition 2021

As a member of the Centre County Council for Human Services, you are cordially invited to recognize a volunteer for the 49th Rose Cologne Volunteer Recognition.

Typically held as a dinner, it is named in honor of Dr. Rose Cologne, a mentor and role model for many in the human services field. It pays tribute to those volunteers who work to further the mission of CCCHS member agencies and the community at large.

Each member agency is invited to nominate one volunteer to be recognized. The volunteer will be recognized in the Centre Daily Times (Please note that your 2021 membership dues must be paid in full. Contact Sean Rockmore,, if you are unsure of your organization’s status.)

To nominate a volunteer from your organization: 

Send an email to by Friday, April 2 with the following:    


  • Completed two-page CDT form to have your volunteer featured in the CDT. The CDT has requested a quote from your volunteer about why they choose to work with your organization

  • We would like to personally present each volunteer with a certificate and token of

       appreciation at your agency location. On the second page of the CDT form, there are a

       few questions to facilitate this.

  • A color photograph (head and shoulders shot) in JPEG format, for the CDT article. The photograph should be high resolution, 100 KB or larger. CDT tributes and photographs will be published on Sunday, April 18.

  • A one-page tribute for your volunteer. The tribute will be read, recorded, and posted to CCCHS social media. Your volunteer will also receive a copy of the tribute. Please email the tribute on your agency’s letterhead. If that isn’t possible, we can print it on CCCHS’s letterhead. Please limit your tribute to 200 words. Longer tributes will be condensed. (Please note: We are unable to accommodate video or musical tributes.)

We look forward to celebrating our community’s extraordinary volunteers through social media and in the CDT on April 18!
