Who do you know that has made a big impact on our communities? It’s time to start thinking about nominations for Citizens of the Year and Educators of the Year.
Last year, I had several people ask “Why didn’t so-and-so win?” and I replied that they had not been nominated. Don’t just assume that someone else will nominate them! If you feel strongly that someone deserves to be honored, get a form and let us know!
Citizen of the Year recognizes the contributions of the past year of a person between the ages of 25 and 60. Whether it be social, charitable, or governmental; we want to honor the difference they make.
Our Senior Citizen of the Year award honors those who are over the age of 60. Tell us who is using their experience and maturity to better our little corner of the world so we can recognize them.
We award an Educator of the Year plaque to someone in each of the surrounding school districts to the education professional that has gone above and beyond for their students.
Mark Monday, February 9 on your calendar as the Chamber celebrates prominent citizens and educators and as we highlight the achievements of our businesses and organizations. The event is not just for Chamber members, everyone is welcome. It’s sure to be a night of fun and laughter!
