Help HR Pick an Outstanding Achiever

by Bobby Blair
November 3, 2018

Dear Reader: For the past ten years the HollistonReporter.com has chosen a number of deserving citizens for our Outstanding Achievement Award. Several simple rules apply. The nominees CAN NOT have been chosen as Celebrate Holliston's Citizen of the Year. They should have made a contribution to Holliston & its citizens. Generally, the nominees have been Holliston citizens, but on several occasions were not. We ask you to nominate deserving persons by emailing the publisher at: mudvillemayor@gmail.com with names and a short description of why this person deserves the honor. The growing staff at HollistonReporter.com will choose winners in late November for a presentation in December. Let the cream flow to the top.

Previous Outstanding Achievers were:

2017: Cherry Fenton for work with Holliston in Bloom, Bryan Clancy for creating affordable housing

2016: Gina Stucchi for combating drug abuse, AJ Collins for youth involvement, Chris Leoncini for supporting charitable organizations

2015: Ken Szajda for town finances and Ed Daniels for work with the Friends of Holliston Trails

2014: PJ Killkelly for work on the Ag/com Butterfly Aviary, Ellin Austin for work with the Pantry Shelf and Historical Commission

2013: John Moore for plantings at the golf course, Martha Ellis for protecting feral cats and work on the rail trail

2012: Kathy Shore for Celebrate Holliston, Herb Brockert for work on the rail trail and Mike Tyman for scouting and working with Holliston youth

2011: Robert McGrath for work with the Holliston Citizens Scholarship Foundation

2010: Tony Bellomo for Pop Warner Football, Frank Melle, for 100th Anniversary of Holliston Historical Society, and Robert Weidknecht for Holliston Rail Trail.
