Central Bank recognized Fulton resident Nancy Hanson on Tuesday for her positive impact on the community.

"This is really exciting," Hanson said.

Throughout the month of November, Central Bank has been awarding individuals across the Jefferson City area with $500. Over 250 people were nominated to the Celebrate Kindness competition.

"The whole thing was, there's just so much negativity right now," Central Bank public relations coordinator Angela Nale said. "We were looking to do something positive and just to hear the positive stories that happen in the community that you don't necessarily hear about."

Hanson for her efforts to teach children how to ride a bike during the iCan Bike camps that she brought to Fulton, as well as her volunteer work with the Central Missouri Dream Factory.

"Nancy is the best mom, friend, wife, daughter and volunteer anyone could ever ask for," one of her nominators wrote. "Life hasn't always been high for her, but she will never let her defeater her. Nancy is a wonderful role model to all who know her."
