---- — LONDONDERRY — A longtime volunteer has earned one of the town’s top awards.
Kevin Foley has been selected as the 2012 recipient of the Robert W. Lincoln Youth Service Award.
The honor is presented to those who demonstrate leadership, volunteerism and a strong commitment and devotion to the town, especially youth.
Foley will receive his award at the Londonderry High School spring pep rally on May 3.
The award is named for Bob Lincoln, a longtime volunteer and someone who served on many town boards and committees.
Lincoln served on the School Board for 20 years, has served as chairman of many committees and is an active Londonderry Lions Club member.
Foley was chosen by the selection committee for his work with the town’s youth, including the soccer and lacrosse programs, and also the recreation commission.
He served as a general contractor for the Londonderry Youth Sports Association’s concession stand and designed pavilions for use at the town’s West Road Continental Park complex.
Foley also volunteered his services as a contractor to build dugouts at the high school’s softball field. He has donated many hours to lay out and line the fields.
“Kevin M. Foley has given himself selflessly for the youth of Londonderry and clearly exemplifies the spirit of giving and volunteerism that exemplifies Bob Lincoln’s spirit of selfless volunteerism,” the award letter said.
Past recipients of the award include Kay Doyle, Terri Roucheleau, Scott Hale, Mary Theos, Dave Kelly, Ron Campo, John Reynolds, Bob Slater and Gary Fisher.
There is a plaque in the high school gym honoring award winners through the years. The pep rally on May 3 begins at 8:30 a.m.
