Those qualities are the essence of Floridian Steve Uhlfelder who serves as the voluntary chair of the state’s mentoring effort and voluntary CEO of the Florida Hurricane Relief Fund, among his many volunteer service duties.

The award came during ceremonies honoring this year's weekly recipients of the Governor's Points of Light Award in Florida.
