“‘[Stover] supports not only numerous charitable organizations, but also helps families in need in our community in a quiet and unassuming manner,’” said Jim Ashworth, the Chamber’s outgoing chairman, reading from one nomination form prior to the announcement that Stover had won the award. “Another nomination submitted said, ‘He likes to help people that need help just because he thinks it’s the right thing to do.’”
Stover is involved in Paulding County Rotary, Family Alliance of Paulding, McKenna Farms and several other organizations around the community.
