The Progressive Community Awards recognizes individuals, organizations, and businesses in the Roanoke Valley that have made significant contributions to the betterment of the community.
Awards will be presented in three categories: Community Bridge Builder, Faith in Action, and Youth Impact.
Halifax County Superior Court Judge Brenda Branch will give remarks during the program.

In 2022, Branch was elected as the new Halifax County superior court judge.
