The Sampson County Historical Society is proud to announce that one of our members, Mr. J.C. Knowles, recently received the 2014 Apex Citizen of the Year Award!
Mr. Knowles was recognized by the Town of Apex Chamber of Commerce during their annual awards banquet on November 6, 2014.
His own words: “It caught me by surprise and for once I was almost lost for words. I serve Apex as the town’s “Ambassador,” and I am so proud of Apex and I enjoy all the things that I am allowed to do. If you ever get a chance to visit Apex, I hope you will give me the opportunity to share with you some of our wonderful town history. Apex was voted the best town in North Carolina to live in and ninth in the United States. Come see us, we would love to have you.”
For those members who don’t always have the chance to attend our quarterly meetings, it’s hard to describe him to you. Those who are able to attend know him as the life of our Historical Society. He keeps us laughing and smiling, and we’re disappointed when he can’t make it! J. C. Knowles, you are also the “Ambassador of The Sampson County Historical Society.”
