Time to find Imperial’s Outstanding Citizens
What does it take to be a community’s outstanding citizen? People of Imperial will find out in a few weeks when the city council chooses two Outstanding Citizens, one adult over the age of 18 and another 18 and younger.
While it may seem a daunting title to some, I believe we have many Outstanding Citizen award candidates in our community of Imperial. Just look around—they may be living right next door.
The city initiated the Outstanding Citizen recognition a couple of months ago, when a council member learned of the award in another community. Councilman Chad Yaw felt it sounded like something Imperial should have, and brought up the idea to fellow council members. He’s right. Too many times we let ourselves dwell on what’s wrong with people when there’s so much to celebrate about the lives of so many here.
