PRINCETON, IN – Onsite Occupational Health and Safety, Inc. (Onsite OHS) announced today that Michelle Prinzing, Chief of Staff/Director of Administration, has been awarded the Citizens Hero Award by the Airpower Foundation, the nation's oldest military support organization.

Prinzing was honored with the award during the foundation's annual Sky Ball, held Friday, Oct. 4, and Saturday, Oct. 5 inside an American Airlines Hangar at the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport in Texas. Onsite OHS is one of several sponsors of the fundraiser, which supports families of the men and women serving our country, especially those assigned to Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base in Fort Worth.

"I feel deeply honored and humbled to have received this special award," said Prinzing. "I'm involved in my community and my church because I feel it is part of my civic duty. When you work from your heart, you end up doing what you love. There are countless other fellow citizens doing the same thing as I am; getting involved and making a difference."

The award, in its inaugural year, recognizes those who have gone above and beyond in their communities based on the six pillars of what it means to truly be a citizen hero as set by the Medal of Honor Foundation: Courage, Sacrifice, Patriotism, Citizenship, Integrity and Commitment.

Each year, recipients of the Congressional Medal of Honor reach out across the nation to find unsung citizen heroes. The recipients believe Americans need not serve in the military, nor be in combat against the Nation's enemies, to demonstrate the traits embodied in the Medal of Honor; courage, sacrifice, selflessness, and patriotism.

The committees of American Airlines Sky Ball XI and the Airpower Foundation founded the award to also "honor those who consistently demonstrate the values set by the Medal of Honor Society." Each year, many of the Congressional Medal of Honor recipients attend the Sky Ball gala.´┐╝Prinzing was nominated for the award by Kyle G. Johnson, president & CEO of Onsite OHS. In his 150-word nomination letter, Johnson wrote "Michelle's dependable nature makes her an ideal board member and community leader (as noted by her numerous board involvements)."

"Michelle Prinzing is an example of the six pillars of courage, sacrifice, patriotism, citizenship, integrity and commitment put into action," Johnson wrote in his nomination letter. "Her selfless leadership and community involvement embodies the spirit of the Citizens Hero Award."

Highlights of Prinzing's community involvement includes: serving on the Gibson County Chamber of Commerce's Board of Directors; secretary/treasurer for the Gibson County Facilities Holding Corporation; first female chairperson of the Gibson County Republican Party; and Chairman of Women's Ministries at First Baptist Church.

Prinzing, and her husband, Pastor George Prinzing, reside in Princeton and have three children and two grandchildren.
