Chamber seeks Citizen of the Year nominations

Special to the Review
The Athens Review

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 St.,  Suite No. 1, Athens, TX 75751, no later than Dec. 28, 2012.

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