FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. On Dec. 11, the Forsyth County Master Gardeners held their annual holiday luncheon and gave out the Master Gardener of the Year and several other awards.

Bill Roper was awarded Master Gardener of the Year, and also won the award for most volunteer hours.

The Annual Service Award was given to Jackie Grote. Bonnie Williams and Kathy Weintraub tied for the Prestige Award, and Dennis Whittle tied with Lou Vanek for the Contributions to Education Programs Award.

Roper, president and treasurer of the Forsyth County Master Gardeners organization, has been a master gardener since 2010.

He is a leader in all aspects of the organization and is recognized for leading the organization's progress by setting goals, objectives and improving the communication processes for the nonprofit.

Roper motivates master gardeners with his leadership and dedication to volunteering.

During the group's annual plant sale, he was front and center, handling many logistical details and communications. This year, Roper helped create a calendar that details the responsibilities of the board and project managers.
