The Genoa Lions invited the 12 recipients of the Citizen of the Year Award and their parents to dinner on April 17. Genoa-Kingston School Dist. 424 Superintendent Joe Burgess made a short speech about the value of these special students and their parents’ contribution to raising great kids. Each of the district’s principals introduced the students from their school by reading a letter of recommendation from the student’s teacher. Each student received a medal.

Citizens of the year were Reese Tomlinson, first grade; Nolan Perry, second grade; Sydney Krueger, third grade; Brooke Foley, fourth grade; Amanda Musielski, fifth grade; Lauren Chriss, sixth grade; Nathan Shannon, seventh grade; Cally McPherson, eighth grade; Alex Widmayer, ninth grade; Trevor Simmons, 10th grade; Olivia Cotton, 11th grade; and Charlie Koeppen, 12th grade.
