Fearrington village residents Amelia Carew and Suzanne North have been honored for their volunteer efforts by UNC Hospitals and the Duke Heart Center.

Amelia received the 2005 Elaine M. Hill Award for Distinguished Volunteer Service from UNC Hospitals, and the Duke Heart Center named Suzanne as "Volunteer of the Year."

Amelia has served as president of the UNC Hospital Volunteers for the past two years.

Her award citation read, in part:

"For several years, she has demonstrated a high level of commitment not only to the Hospitals, but also to the Volunteer Association itself. As a member of its Board of Directors, she has served as an administrator who has always led by example. It is for these qualities that her fellow volunteers had chosen her to serve as their associations president, and the reason we honor her today."

Suzannes award, presented annually by the Heart Center Patient Support Program, is given to a volunteer who has exemplified a compassionate nature and gives of their time freely as a volunteer. She has been a maternity Hospital Aide, Speech Clinic Aide and Clinical Aide for Planned Parenthood.

As a volunteer, she comes in contact with many patients and their families. "She always has a warm smile, a gentle demeanor, a helpful attitude and leaves a lasting impression on those individuals that she sees. She is the epitome of an excellent volunteer and certainly deserving of the award," the announcement said.
