COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - One local company is recognizing employees for giving back to their community.
TSYS held its second annual Heart of TSYS Awards Ceremony honoring team members who have a heart for volunteering and helping their local communities.
Winners of the award will each choose a nonprofit that will receive a donation from TSYS.
One of the three winners was TSYS Business Specialist Sara Banks of Columbus, who spends more than 60 hours a week volunteering with the Boy Scouts of America.
"This is very overwhelming," Banks said. "It's an incredible honor to be recognized for so much dedicated work I have done for scouting."
The award is named for longtime TSYS Chairman and CEO Phil Tomlinson.
