Gulf Power Company has honored a North Okaloosa service group with a Power of Service award.
The utility presented Crestview's Carver-Hill Museum with a $2,500 check to aid community outreach.
Carver-Hill Museum honors the now-closed, segregated Carver-Hill School and chronicles the local African-American community's history with displays of photos, yearbooks and sports memorabilia.
S4P Synergy of Fort Walton Beach, another Power of Service recipient, creates a partnership between churches, businesses and government entities to provide emergency financial assistance with utilities, rent, food, prescription medication and funerals.
The recipients received the awards — which recognize groups continuing Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s legacy — during a Dec. 6 ceremony in Fort Walton Beach.
