Renee Price, the vice chairperson of the Orange County Board of County Commissioners, was presented the M.H. "Jack" Brock Outstanding County Commissioner Award which recognizes special achievement and efforts on Aug. 15.
Lacy Pate, the public relations manager for the North Carolina Association of County Commissioners, said the honor is awarded by executive officers who review the nominations of the NCACC Board of Directors. She said commissioners who win the award have to achieve something that goes above and beyond their leadership position in their county.
Pate said Commissioner Price’s extensive leadership positions made her a deserving recipient for the award. Currently Price is a member of numerous local, state and national initiatives such as the NCACC Board of Directors and the NCACC Justice and Public Safety and Health and Human Services Steering Committees.
Price said, ultimately, her love for people is what fuels her work as commissioner.
“What I love about the job is working with people and helping my community to improve upon the good things that we have and to improve upon the things that need to be improved,” Price said.
