One of Sandy Springs top employees recently received national recognition for her work.

The Kansas City, Kansas-based Grant Professionals Association honored Assistant City Manager Eden Freeman as its Volunteer Spotlight, according to the city.

The award recognizes Freeman’s volunteer work for the organization at both the state and national level, a city press release said. The professional association also gave Freeman its President’s Award in 2010. The press release said Freeman currently serves as president of the Georgia chapter of GPA.

“Eden has been a key player in forming the Georgia Chapter and its continued growth,” said Barb Boggs, Volunteer Relations Manager for the Grant Professionals Association. “In addition, she plays an active role as chair of both the Nominating and E-newsletter Committees on the national level. It was a unanimous decision to recognize her for all of her efforts.”
