City leaders need outstanding citizens as nominees for the Issaquah Hall of Fame, the annual honor bestowed on someone for making a lasting contribution to the community.
Every spring, the mayor and City Council president select the honoree. Mayor Ava Frisinger and Council President Tola Marts plan evaluate nominees on several criteria, such as civic-mindedness, leadership and service.
Frisinger and Marts also evaluate the role a person plays in drawing positive attention to Issaquah and fundraising for the public good. Length of service is a factor in the decision as well.
The award is among the most prestigious honors in the Issaquah community.
Send the name of the nominee and a brief summary of his or her contributions to the community to: The Office of the Mayor, P.O. Box 1307, Issaquah, WA 98027-1307. Or submit the nomination via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The nominations must be received by May 21. Call 837-3020 or email email@example.com to learn more.
The city plans to announce the honoree at the annual Community Awards Luncheon on May 31.
Past honorees include Harriet Fish, environmentalist Ruth Kees, Issaquah Highlands mastermind Judd Kirk and, last year, Triple XXX Rootbeer Drive-in proprietor José Enciso.
