Citizen of the Year 2021 Canceled
From Special Reports
For 29 years, Coweta County has been recognizing and honoring outstanding citizens in the community through the Citizen of the Year event.
This program was designed to recognize individuals with outstanding leadership and citizenship within our community. Those selected will have demonstrated exemplary vision, civic pride, and a strong commitment to a better Coweta through volunteerism and community involvement.
This year’s Citizen of the Year committee has made the very difficult decision to cancel the 2021 event and reschedule in January 2022.
First and foremost of concern was the safety and health of everyone involved. Additionally, because of social distancing, the venue would only be able to accommodate 50% of the normal capacity. The committee didn’t think it would be appropriate to limit the number of guests the nominees would want to invite to join them in their honor and recognition.
Additionally, the committee felt the recipient and nominees deserved red carpet recognition as has been done in the past years, and didn’t want to diminish the importance and dignity of the event.
We’re disappointed that we had to cancel this year’s event, but feel that it’s in the best interest of everyone involved. We’ll be back in 2022!
