BADC invites nominations for 2021 Citizen of the Year
The Barrington Area Development Council, the nonprofit civic organization with a long history of sponsoring initiatives and organizations that have benefited the Barrington Area community, is inviting nominations for its 2021 Citizen of the Year Award.
Each year, BADC selects a local resident who has shown exemplary leadership and contribution to the greater Barrington area through their volunteer efforts.
BADC is now looking for nominations of worthy recipients for its 2021 Citizen of the Year Award, which will be announced by Quintessential Barrington magazine in its January 2022 issue.
A BADC Citizen of the Year Committee will select the winner from nominees representing, but not limited to, diverse fields such as: Work With Our Youth, Public Service, Philanthropy, Healthcare, Conservation, Preservation, Education and Transportation.
This year's winner will be the 47th recipient of the annual award.
Last year, BADC presented its 2020 Citizen of the Year Award to Brian Battle, former Barrington 220 School District board president, in recognition of his extensive volunteer efforts in support of youth development programs.
In the prior year, the organization honored local volunteers and philanthropists Vincent and Patricia Foglia for their integral role in supporting, advising and mentoring local nonprofit organizations, including GiGi's Playhouse Down Syndrome Achievement Centers and the NeuroBalance Center in Barrington.
