NOTTINGHAM, MD—Baltimore County Councilman David Marks this week announced eight recipients of the Fifth District Citizens of the Year program, honoring those who have contributed to the community in outstanding ways.
This year’s Citizens of the Year are:
- Cathy Balcar and Drena Fertetta, for their support of our community through Marian Preparatory Academy and food and household goods collection;
- Robert Chaney, for his leadership in the Kingsville Volunteer Fire Company and on the Kingsville Independence Day Committee, and for improving the Kingsville Triangle;
- Al Corpisz, for his work to improve traffic safety in the Avondale Road area of Carney;
- Daniel Carl Torsch Foundation, for its efforts to help vulnerable individuals, combat substance abuse and support recovery housing and rehabilitation.
- Angie Feehly, for her contributions to Kingsville Elementary School and the Kingsville community;
- Ruth Hens, for her efforts to clean up and beautify the waterways and neighborhoods of Carney; and
- George Majchrzak, for improving the Kingsville Triangle.
Councilman Marks established the Ctizens of the Year program in 2011 to recognize exceptional community volunteers.
Redistricting moved the Towson area to the Sixth District and added White Marsh and Middle River to the Fifth District in early December. Newly-added neighborhoods will be part of the program starting in 2023.
“I want to thank all our outstanding community leaders and volunteers, and particularly acknowledge the hard work of our Citizens of the Year,” said Councilman Marks.
