I’d like to pass along congratulations to two outstanding people I work with or know.
My Fun 107.1 colleague Rick Burgei was named “Tri-County Man Of The Year” by the Delphos Herald newspaper for 2016.
And Delphos Jefferson Senior High School teacher Missie McClurg was honored as “Tri-County Woman Of The Year” by the same publication.
Over more than 35 years, Rick has distinguished himself as a quiet and unassuming volunteer for countless community causes and charities, giving selflessly and without any expectation of recognition.
Missie’s work on behalf of the students who attend Jefferson Senior High has garnered several accomplishments, among them securing a million dollar grant which has resulted in the construction of a Career Technical Center which will benefit students from a total of 7 area school districts.
It’s knowing great people who do great things quietly that makes living here something I still relish every day.
That’s the way I see it.
