Spirit of Beckley award goes to creative couple

 

 

BECKLEY, W. Va (WVVA)-- The people of Beckley get a chance to honor those who help make the city a better place.

The "Spirit of Beckley" community service award went to Jerry and Sherry Rose this year.

The couple fosters arts in the community and educates youth at the Beckley Dance Theatre school.

They humbly accepted their award-- one of Beckley's top honors. Jerry says they're excited to be recognized like this.

"We are products of Beckley," he said. "We both grew up here and started our training here and it's such a thrill to know that people appreciate what [we] have done."

The proceeds of the event go toward youth programs like camps, after school care, and sports at the YMCA of Southern West Virginia.
