The Gainesville Jaycees are accepting nominations for the 2014 Young Man and Young Woman of the Year Award.

The award recognizes young leaders in Hall County for their achievements in leadership and service to the community.

Nomination forms are available online at and are due Jan. 23. Women and men who are 40 years of age or younger and have lived in Hall County during 2014 are eligible.

The Young Man of the Year award dates back to 1945, and the Young Woman of the Year award has been given since 2001. The purpose of the award is not only to honor deserving young men and women, but also to inspire the community to pursue civic service with selfless devotion.

“Much is expected of these honorees,” says Brett Fowler, president of Gainesville Jaycees. “They have continued their service to the community long after their award, going on to serve in positions such as federal judge, U.S. congressman, governor, bank president and generous philanthropist.”

The 2013 recipients, Jimbo Floyd and Melissa Tymchuk, are leading efforts to solicit nominations for the 2014 award. The awards will be presented at a banquet at 6 p.m. March 5 at the Chattahoochee Country Club in Gainesville.

Nominations can be submitted online at, emailed to or mailed to Mr. Jimbo Floyd/Mrs. Melissa Tymchuk, YMOW & YWOY Judging Committee Chairs, P.O. Box 572, Gainesville, GA 30503.
