Reston Citizen of the Year Nominations Sought

Reston Citizens Association seeks nominations for this year’s Reston Citizen of the Year Award.

Past RCA Citizen of the Year honorees include Janet Howell, Embry Rucker, Jim Allred, Dave Edwards, Cate Fulkerson and Marion Stillson.

The tradition of honoring the Reston Citizen of the Year began in 1976, and was reintroduced in 2008.

The Reston Citizen of the Year will be honored at a reception in the spring of 2016 “as a way to spotlight the work of dedicated citizen volunteers and civic activists who work tirelessly behind the scenes, providing them the recognition and appreciation they have earned through their hard work and dedication to the Reston community,” according to RCA documents.

RCA is a non-profit organization that serves more than 60,000 people. RCA was founded in 1967 to promote and protect Reston’s founding principles by serving as a non-partisan forum for all residents and as a community advocate with County and State government.

Nominations are due by Feb. 19, 2016 and may be submitted online or by downloading the nomination form and submitting via postal mail or email as indicated on the nomination form.

Nominees must be a Reston resident for at least 5 years, taken actions that “are consistent with the goals of Reston and of RCA” and “have contributed to the quality of life in Reston,” and have benefited people in need of help. The nominee should not currently be serving as an elected official or member of the Board of a major community organization (RA, RCA, or RCC).
