The Junior Chamber International (JCI) Vernon Good Citizen Committee is now accepting nominations for Vernon’s 2018 Good Citizen of the Year.

Nomination deadline is Friday, Jan. 11.

“The award is given annually to celebrate an individual who has made a positive impact to the community, who’s community involvement and volunteerism goes above and beyond,” said JCI Vernon 2019 president Robbie Hoyte.

The 2017 Good Citizen of the Year was Cindy Masters, development officer for the Kindale Developmental Association.

The committee is asking that all nominations include a letter describing why the person you’re nominating should receive this award and their contributions, as well as the nominator’s contact information.

“If you’ve nominated someone in the past who has not yet been a recipient of the award we encourage you to nominate them again,” said Hoyte.
