Nominations Open for Citizen of the Year 2015

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Nominations Open for Citizen of the Year 2015

By Miranda Gilbert

Guymon, OK – From the time we were kids we all looked up to a hero. Some were found in comics or on the big screen and some were right here at home.

It's time to honor a local hero, or resident, who has made an impact on our community over the years with outstanding dedication. Nominations for the "Citizen of the Year" are now open.

Each year the Guymon City Council asks for the residents of Guymon to nominate someone they feel deserves this prestigious award. The recipient is awarded a plaque by the Mayor of Guymon during the annual Chamber of Commerce banquet which will be held October 27, 2015.

In addition, the winner receives $500 from the F. Hiner Dale Award Fund to donate to the non-profit organization of his or her choice. This fund was started by the Dale family to recognize and award one person each year for their outstanding dedication and service to the Guymon community.

If you are a resident of Guymon and know of someone that lives in Guymon that has given their time and talents to special projects or organizations, please send in their name, contact information, and a brief biography and account of their history and service to the Guymon community. Nominations can be emailed, mailed or hand-delivered to the City of Guymon Community Development Office in City Hall, 219 N.W. Fourth St.

Nominations will be accepted until 5 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 15, 2015. Nominations received after that time will not be accepted.

Nominations will be reviewed and voted on by City Council through a secret ballot, and the winning recipient will receive his or her award at the annual Chamber of Commerce Banquet on October 27. Tickets are $30 per person and the theme this year is Honoring Marvelous Local Heroes. There will be a dinner, entertainment, awards, and contests including one for "Best Costume."

For more information, contact the Community Development office at 338-5838. To email your nomination send it to miranda.gilbert@guymonok.org .
