Initiated in 1972, The Jefferson Awards for Public Service honors ordinary people who do extraordinary things for others. The 2012 Washington State Jefferson Award winners will be featured on “Evening Magazine” on KING5 on March 12.

This year’s state honorees are personal injury attorney Richard Adler, Friendship Adventures founder Maureen Browning, Jewels of Hope founder Greer Gates, health advocate and volunteer Maria Koh, and Schools for Salone founder Cindy Nofziger.

Koh’s career at the University of Washington Medical Center as a hospital and clinic nutritionist led to the development of cutting-edge education for health providers and consumers. Early on, she began to extend the reach of her workplace into volunteer work and has made an important difference for children, the elderly, and new immigrants to this community.

On March 12, voting will open for nominees on KING5.com. The ones that garner the most votes will be eligible for the national award. (end)
