Valdosta - Nick Lacey of Valdosta is one of 102 people nominated for the award that recognizes the outstanding accomplishments of men and women in Georgia's public safety community.

Lacey has served as director of the Lowndes County 911 center for the past eight years. Regardless of who wins, he said its an honor just to be nominated.

"It's certainly an honor to be recognized on the state level, but more importantly to me, being nominated by my counterparts without me even knowing was award enough for me," said Lacey.

Several other South Georgians were also nominated for the award - Marty Brown of Bainbridge, Steve Shierling of Thomasville, and Kelvin Hawkins of Albany. The winners will be announced on October 11th.
