Entries in Citizen of the Year (8)
Each year the WSDA requests nominations for its most prestigious award, the Citizen of the Year. The WSDA is looking for those members who have displayed exemplary service to the community through civic activities. This may include service with organizations, schools, non-salaried government positions or church sponsored community activities. Volunteer work does not have to be dental related.
The award is presented at the Citizen of the Year banquet held during the annual House of Delegates meeting in September. This year the banquet will be held on September 14th in Walla Walla. Last year’s winner was Dr. Mike Karr, recognized for his tireless work in Haiti, Tanzania/Uganda, the Philippines, Honduras and Nicaragua.
Nominations may be made by an individual member of the WSDA, a component dental society, or staff of a WSDA member dentist. The deadline for nominations is April 26.
