Florida's Secretary of State Kurt S. Browning will be recognizing the accomplishments of Sarasota’s own Dolly Jacobs at the Florida Heritage Awards in Tallahassee this evening, Wednesday March 21. Dolly is the recipient of a 2012 Florida Folk Heritage Award. The Florida Department of State presents Folk Heritage Awards annually to citizens whose lifelong devotion to folk-life has enriched the state’s cultural legacy. Superlatives are insufficient to describe Dolly Jacobs the performer or Dolly Jacobs the person. Watching her soar above the ring is truly watching poetry in motion; and seeing her smile is like viewing a brilliant sunrise. In both instances, you know that you’re in the presence of an extraordinary individual.
