FRCF seeks nominations for Ozark Citizen of the Year


The Finley River Community Foundation seeks nominations for the 2021 Citizen of the Year Award.

The recipient of the 2021 Citizen of the Year award will be announced at the Ozark Community Awards Banquet on Feb. 5, 2022. This annual event is hosted by the Finley River Community Foundation and the Ozark Chamber of Commerce to honor outstanding achievement and service in Ozark. In addition to the Citizen of the Year, awards are presented to recognize outstanding achievement and service in the Ozark School District, in public safety work and in the business community.

The Citizen of the Year is an Ozark area resident who has demonstrated unselfish contributions to the community’s quality of life and embodies the spirit and character of the Ozark community. Nominees must be a U.S. citizen who has lived in the Ozark area — defined as the Ozark 911 service area — for five or more years.

The Finley River Community Foundation will award a $100 stipend to a local charity chosen by each of nine different award winners. Previous winners of the Citizen of the Year Award include Cynthia Glenn, Bruce Galloway, Dr. Cindy Baker, Keith Robinette, Randy Wright, Julie Tope, JaDonna Rice, Carl Hefner, Michelle Lindsey, Carole Collins, Elise Crain, Bill Hanks and Don Currence.

Nominations must be received by Jan. 14, 2022, and include the nominator’s name, address and phone number, nominee’s name and a description of why the nominee should win the award. Submit the nomination by email to geraldchambers@ozarktigers.org or mail the form prior to Jan. 14, 2022 to Finley River Community Foundation, P.O. Box 1176, Ozark, MO 65721.
