City of Dublin Announces 2016 Citizen, Young Citizen, and Organization of the Year

The City of Dublin has announced the 2016 Citizen of the Year, Young Citizen of the Year, and Organization of the Year.

Citizen: Jean Josey

Young Citizen: Kevin Hom

Organization: Dublin Lions Club

Also recognized were Rich Boschetti (Mayor's Award) and Valerie Barnes (Mayor's Legacy Award).

The purpose of these awards is to recognize outstanding individuals and groups who have contributed to the quality of life in Dublin this past year.  Nomination criteria for both the Citizen and Young Citizen of the Year Awards are based on the Dublin Integrity in Action Program’s 10 Characteristics: Responsibility, Respectfulness, Caring, Giving, Positive Attitude, Trustworthiness, Cooperation, Doing One’s Best, Honesty, and Self-Discipline.  The Young Citizen of the Year recognizes the volunteer service of Dublin’s youth in 1st – 12th grade.  The Mayor’s Award is a special award that the Mayor presents to someone whom he believes has worked tirelessly on behalf of the Dublin community in the previous calendar year.  The Mayor’s Legacy Award is an award that the Mayor presents to someone to recognize extraordinary, long-term dedication to the Dublin community.


Award recipients will be recognized at the March 7, 2017, City Council meeting.  The Organization of the Year will receive a $500 cash prize, and a $300 donation will be given to each of the Citizen and Young Citizen of the Year’s favorite non-profit organization.  Ms. Josey has chosen the Dublin High School PFSO to receive her donation, and Young Citizen award-winner Kevin Hom will donate his prize to the Dublin Rotary Club.
