OneJax, an institute of the University of North Florida, announced the recipients of its 2021 Humanitarian Awards. 

Honorees will be recognized April 15 at a virtual event.

Nathaniel “Nat” Glover, former Duval County Sheriff and former president of Edward Waters College, will receive the Gold Medallion Lifetime Achievement Award.

A Silver Medallion Award will be presented to Martin Goetz, CEO of River Garden Senior Services.

Robert and Margaret Hill also will receive a Silver Medallion. Robert Hill is a former CEO and vice chair of Acosta Sales and Marketing Co. and  Margaret Hill is a community volunteer.

“We are honoring a group of deserving people who have made a positive impact on our community and are passionate about making Jacksonville the best place it can possibly be,” said Kyle Reese, OneJax executive director, in a news release Feb. 15.

“These honorees represent a cross section of people doing meaningful work to make an important difference in the lives of so many in Northeast Florida. Their impact is immeasurable.”

OneJax Chair Michael Korn said in the release that the organization “has been doing important work for many years in our community—but perhaps never as important as during this past challenging year.

“This year’s honorees reflect our efforts to emphasize civility in conversations, even when difficult subjects are discussed, and embody the characteristics of understanding and respect for all through education, dialogue and community building. Their impact has been felt and realized throughout our community and beyond.”

A remote networking reception will begin at 6 p.m., followed by a one-hour program at 7 p.m.

The Humanitarian Awards event is free, but reservations are required. Visit here for tickets.
