Larry W. Craig, co-founder of Children's Village of Washington County and Washington County Crime Solvers, has been selected Washington County's Most Wonderful Citizen.
"It was really a surprise. It's really gratifying," Craig said.
Craig said he has no plans to stop his volunteer efforts. "I really love it."
He said the needs of children, including his own grandchildren, keep him motivated.
"What you have to do is say, how much is a human life worth. If you save one kid, you've done your job," he said.
Children's Village instructs second-graders in Washington County on fire safety, crime, seat belts and bike safety. Senior citizens also are taught fire safety and how to avoid scams. About 3,200 students go through the doors each year.
