Sid Edwards Named Citizen of the Year

By  | 

    At the Central Chamber of Commerce Awards Banquet, three special awards were given on behalf of the community.  Community members were invited to submit nominations for Citizen of the Year and the Lifetime Citizenship Award.  The nominations were given to a group of representatives from seven of Central’s non-profit organizations, who then selected the recipients of these awards.
    Sid Edwards was chosen as the 2013 Citizen of the Year not only for his work as a successful football coach, but also for his genuine concern for the lives of his student athletes and for his role as a dedicated family man.  He encourages young people to excel on and off of the football field, both in school and in ways that help charitable causes in our community.

    Mac Watts & Ruby Foil received Lifetime Citizenship Awards.
