A Morenci resident was chosen Lenawee County’s Citizen of the Year by the Adrian Daily Telegram.
Ten people were nominated for the annual award and Rosemary Dickerson was chosen the winner.
Dickerson was nominated for her many volunteer efforts that help improve the lives of many Morenci residents.
Dickerson is member of the Morenci Kiwanis Club and helps coordinate club projects, including the Wishing Tree effort and the Mott Children’s Hospital donation drive.
She’s the vice president of the Morenci Education Foundation and helps with scholarships and the annual dinner and auction. She’s also involved with the United Way, the Morenci Area Chamber of Commerce and the Community Thanksgiving Dinner.
The letter written for her nomination stated, “It’s not possible to determine exactly how many lives Rosemary’s efforts positively impact each year, but in our community it’s significant. She’s always there. She’s a real boon to our town.”
