The Bryan Area Foundation is offering an opportunity for Bryan residents to recognize one of their own. The foundation is seeking nominations for its Good Citizen of the Year Award for 2021.

Deadline for nominations is Friday, Feb. 1.

The Good Citizen of the Year has been selected annually since 1980. The award is endowed by the Hawk family in memory of their parents, Howard C. and Mary Allene Hawk.

The Hawk family established the following criteria for the Good Citizen selection.

• Bryan resident for at least 20 years.

• Been active in unpaid positions with organizations serving Bryan.

• Held a leadership position on an area non-profit board.

• Associated with at least one outstanding accomplishment in the community.

The individual selected is usually recognized during the Foundation’s banquet later in the year. Chip Wood was recognized as the Good Citizen of the Year in 2020.

This year’s nominating chairperson is Diana Moore Eschhofen.

Nomination forms may be picked up at the Bryan Area Foundation office at 110 S. Walnut St., or forms may be downloaded from the foundation website at
