When we were asked to nominate a resident for Parkersburg’s Citizen of the Year, we knew right away that Jean was very deserving. When I handed Jean her postcard that told her she had been nominated and had a special dinner out in the community to celebrate all the amazing contributions she had done this past year, she had a smile from ear to ear and she was so proud.
Jean is a retired school teacher, but her teacher mentality is still present today. She enjoys helping residents learn a new skill, cleaning up after events, delivering newspapers every morning to each resident, helping residents to and from an event, and so many more amazing things. Jean is an asset to our community and her special night out was a dream come true.
