Mandi Anglin awarded Citizen of the Year

Staff Report

The Citizen of the year award is always a fun one because no one knows whom the recipient is until the night of the banquet when the winner is announced. This year's recipient is a real asset to the community of Groesbeck and is involved in so many organizations that work to give back. 

She volunteers at Fishes and Loaves and Backpack Ministries. She is a major help to the Christmas Gift Adoptions for all the Groesbeck ISD schools. She has organized a Prom Dress Drive for Groesbeck High girls. She is also the organizer of the Blanket Drive and helps with the Fill the Pool at schools collecting toiletries, shampoos, etc.

She helps with the chapstick and game drive for our local nursing home. She has been known to help teen moms in need and even has paid the tab of hotels/motels when someone needing help arises. She is always the first to step up for the call of duty in her community. This year's Citizen of the Year is Mandi Anglin.
