Durham, NC - The Junior Chamber International USA (JCI-USA) has named Cindy Honickman, WAKA Kickball & Social Sports Durham and Chapel Hill Franchise Owner, the National Armbruster Award Winner. The Armbruster Award celebrates the distinguished achievements of JCI members who combine leadership with a passion for giving back to the community.
Cindy Honickman joined the Raleigh Jaycees chapter in 2011. During this time, she has contributed significantly to the local community by serving on the local board of directors for two terms, volunteering to serve more than 20 local charity organizations, coordinating numerous leadership development trainings. In addition, Honickman has raised more than $6,000 for the Hugh O’Brien Youth Leadership Seminar and organized the local Chapel Hill-Carrboro Holiday Parade. She has also encouraged players in her WAKA Kickball & Social Sports franchise to get involved in the community through fundraisers, volunteer days, and collection drives.
“I am extremely honored to receive this prestigious award,” said Honickman. “I attribute much of my success as a business owner of a WAKA Kickball & Social Sports franchise to the leadership experience, personal development training, and mentorship I’ve received in the Junior Chamber International organization. I would not be the person I am today without the support and guidance of my fellow Jaycees in North Carolina.”
