Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz honored seven community leaders on Thursday in a “Neighborhood Heroes” awards program highlighting Baltimore County residents who are making unique and significant contributions in the community.
“These folks are our unsung heroes, truly impressive and folks who unselfishly devote their time and energies and expertise because they simply want to give back and keep our communities strong,” said Kamenetz.
Award winners, nominated by their neighbors and community partners, include:
Eric Addison – longtime resident of the Colonial Village neighborhood in Pikesville, who has mounted a one-man litter clean-up effort for the past ten years,
Kelly Carter – Reisterstown resident, Executive Director of the Liberty Road Business Association and active community volunteer,
Purnell Glenn – Miramar Landing Homeowners Association President and active environmental advocate and volunteer,
Anna Norris – Perry Hall grandmother, school puppeteer and founder of the Tender Loving Care Circle volunteers, who donate hand-made blankets and comfort items to children’s organizations,
Jay Patel – 20-year Greater Oella Community Association President, community volunteer and store owner.
Frank Regan – longtime Timonium community leader and former Baltimore County Library Board of Trustees member,
Jean Ann Walker – retired elementary school teacher, church volunteer and historian with the Dundalk Patapsco Neck Historical Society
