To Name Citizens Of The Year

December 31, 2008

North Escambia residents showed just how much they care about our community over the past year, working to improve our communities and the people that call our area home.

Beginning Thursday, will name five of those individuals as one of our Persons of the Year. Each day Thursday to Monday we will name one Person of the Year. Each person will also represent a group of individuals sacrificing a bit of themselves to make North Escambia a better place.

Scores of individuals were nominated as Persons of the Year. Some that made our list of five received multiple nominations; one received no nominations outside of our own. It was not a popularity contest, for doing something for others is not about popularity. Undoubtedly you will know most of the names on our list, but you may not know others.

It was a difficult job to narrow the list to just five, and we hope you will join us everyday Thursday to Monday, January 5 as we share our choices for the North Escambia Persons Of The Year with you.
