The Carolina Patriots NC Society Daughters of the American Revolution chapter recently presented Community Service Awards to Dr. Jennifer Murphy and resident photographer Patricia Francis Curtis during its October and November meetings.
Curtis is a prolific painter and photographer who has selflessly given her time to the town of Mount Olive in numerous ways, according to the chapter. She shares her artwork on her personal Facebook page, but also uses the social media page to send out positive messages to friends and family.
She is a former Jaycee Service Award winner and active in many community events. Curtis loves line dancing and any time she’s around music, she’s usually either singing along or tapping her feet to the beat, according to the chapter.
Josh Phillips, director of the Mount Olive Parks and Recreation Department, recommended Curtis for the award. He loves her spirit and calls her “Ms. Positivity.”
Linda Cassell, regent for the Carolina Patriots group, presented the award to Curtis during the November gathering.
Murphy established her reputation for the past 25 years as a caring and competent professional chiropractic physician in eastern North Carolina, according to the DAR chapter. She lives and practices in Pink Hill.
Well known for her innovative volunteerism, Murphy also shares her knowledge of promoting good health to all ages within the school system and community.
Judi Herring, registrar of the Carolina Patriots NCSDAR, presented the award to Murphy in October.
