Volunteer East Tennessee acts as the coordinating agency for the Governor’s Volunteer Stars Awards, an initiative that seeks to recognize outstanding volunteers from each of Tennessee’s 95 counties. At the state level, awards are given to one outstanding youth and one outstanding adult volunteer.

Honey received the East Tennessee Volunteer Award for her dedication and involvement with C.A.R.E. (Companion Animal Rescue & Education) work. C.A.R.E. has recently signed an agreement with Jefferson County to run the animal shelter and has pledged to work with Jefferson County, Baneberry, Dandridge, Jefferson City, New Market, and White Pine to help not only provide animal services but to promote educational awareness.

Honey, who is President of C.A.R.E., has devoted herself to caring for all breeds and types of animals and explains; “C.A.R.E. is much more than an animal shelter and animal control, it is helping to improve our community through positive action steps and the education of how animal and pet control has a positive impact on a community
