Moore County residents know that Gabby Hunt works tirelessly as a volunteer for many organizations in her hometown. Now the rest of Tennessee knows it too. Hunt was recently recognized by The Governor’s Volunteer Stars Awards with a statewide award to honor her volunteer spirit. The GVSA is an initiative from Volunteer Tennessee and seeks to recognize outstanding volunteers from each of Tennessee’s 95 counties. Hunt was named a 2016 Governor’s Volunteer Star at the annual awards event in Franklin, TN to honor and celebrate volunteerism in Tennessee. Hunt’s work with so many different groups set her apart from other nominees. She has donated her time and use of her farm animals to the local nursing home and 4-H. As a member of the Moore County High School Junior class, Hunt helped raise over $4,000 in funds for their class trip. Her fundraising effort included decorating a traveling commode, which for a donation, could be put in the yard of whomever the donor designated. Hunt has represented Moore County in the State 4-H Congress, the Hugh O’Brien Leadership Conference and the Tennessee Tobacco Free Convention. She offers her time as a member or volunteer in the 4-H Honor Club, The National Honor Society, Student Council, Fellowship of Christian Students, Future Farmers of America, Pee Wee Sports League and Beech Hill Baptist Church.
