Editorial: Pay tribute to someone who has made a difference

Published 8:48 pm Monday, December 16, 2019

Here at the Tribune, we have started work on our annual Progress edition that publishes at the end of February.

Reporters have begun interviewing and writing stories, and advertising representatives are out selling ads.

As part of what has become an annual tradition, we will again feature a Citizen of the Year — a person who goes above and beyond to better the community.

New this year, we will also select a youth Citizen of the Year, who is impacting others at his or her level in the area.

Nominations for both awards will be accepted through Jan. 10, and then a committee will gather to review the recommendations and their qualifications and select the winners.

A reporter will interview the winners, and both will be featured in our Community section of Progress.

Please email your nominations to Managing Editor Sarah Stultz at sarah.stultz@albertleatribune.com or drop them off at the Tribune office at 808 W. Front St.

Include information about what efforts your nominee is involved in within the community. A personal letter stating how this person has impacted others is also welcome. If you have their contact information, please include that, as well.

We look forward to hearing more about the good things happening in the community and recognizing people who are making a difference.
