Victoria Curtis Honored with the Mountaire Better Carolina Award
(Wendell, NC) Somewhere in Wendell, North Carolina, Victoria Curtis is undoubtedly giving her time the community she calls home. Her dedication to the fight against Cancer and eagerness to volunteer at the Wendell Baptist Church to help others in need have earned her the honor of being named the Mountaire Better Carolina Award recipient for August 2012.
The Mountaire Better Carolina Award is a monthly honor designed to highlight local individuals, businesses, civic organizations or classrooms who are going above and beyond in their effort to assist others in the community or to improve and protect the local environment.
For the past ten years Vickie Curtis has dedicated a part of her life to supporting, organizing and leading the East Wake Relay for Life event held at Five County Stadium, home of the Carolina Mudcats baseball team. Each year both her participation and passion for the event has grown as she has gone from a team volunteer, to team captain, to honorary chair, to chair person of the entire event. Through her leadership, encouragement and motivational efforts the East Wake Relay for Life has grown to include over 700 participants and raise more than $110,000 each year, all which goes to the American Cancer Society. When she is not fully engulfed in organizing for Relay for Life, Vickie is known to give her time for various local fundraising events, usually working in the kitchen to help prepare the food to each one.
Fellow Relay for Life volunteer Barbara Groves says, “Vickie would give the shirt off her back if it would help someone.”
“If it wasn’t for the efforts of non-profit organizations such as Relay for Life we wouldn’t have volunteers the calibre of Vickie Curtis who gives her all for the good of the community and organization.
Hard working, dedicated to the cause with a heart of gold, this young lady is more than a role model in the communities where she devotes her time and energy. More time and effort than most people spend on the job every day.
It isn’t easy managing 700 participants to raise well over a hundred thousand dollars each year. And she does it with the dedication of a surgeon who’s goal s parallel Vickie’s : to eradicate cancer. And with the compassion of a member of the clergy and the exacting analysis of the doctor, Vickie Curtis organizes the army of volunteers to march toward victory on the battlefield of science. A battle that needs to be won with the infusion of money from a caring community and its leader.” Roger Marino, Mountaire Communication and Community Relations Director.
For her continuous efforts to help others in the Wendell community where she lives, works, plays and prays, Vickie Curtis was presented with the Mountaire Better Carolina Award for August 2012 and will be featured on select WRAL-TV commercial vignettes in the hopeher story will inspire others to Better Carolina.

A fireman, policeman, or anyone who is an active volunteer at community events, helping others in a local hospital, teaching in a classroom, providing for the homeless, or something as simple as cleaning up the trash along our roadways, can be a candidate for this award.” – Roger Marino, Corporate Community Relations Director, Mountaire Farms
