The Unsung Heroes Award was created by the City Council in 2001 to recognize individuals who contribute to the quality of life in our community without reward or recognition.
There have been 37 awards presented since the program’s inception, and three more outstanding citizens were added to that number at the Tuesday, December 13, 2011 City Council meeting.
