Citizen of the Year nominations sought

Deadline to submit candidates for prestigious honor is Friday, Dec. 28

ATHENS — Nominations are being accepted for the 2012 Athens Citizen of the Year.

The award  was established to acknowledge and show appreciation to citizens who  have exhibited generous community spirit, and a commitment to improving the quality of life for the Citizens of Athens.

This award is important because it recognizes an individual for service that has an  impact on the entire community.

Many of the recipients go largely unknown to the majority of the community and quietly perform tasks that make Athens a better place to call home.

The public is encouraged to nominate individuals who demonstrate outstanding leadership, citizenship, vision, civic pride and a strong commitment to a better Athens.

Nominations should be sent as a letter of recommendation, in a sealed envelope marked “Citizen of the Year Nomination” to the Athens Chamber of Commerce, 201 W.Corsicana  Suite #1, Athens, TX 75751 no later than December 28.

The award recipients’ identity will be kept secret until it is announced at the January 18, 2013, Chamber banquet at the Athens Country Club.

For more information contact the Athens Chamber of Commerce at 903-675-5181 or email
