How the choice is made

January 01, 2008|By ERIN CUNNINGHAM and ANDREW SCHOTZ

At least two dozen people were nominated to be the 2007 Herald-Mail Person of the Year.

Of those people making a difference in the community, Washington County Public Schools Superintendent Elizabeth Morgan received the most nominations. She is the ninth person to receive the honor.

A group of Herald-Mail employees - including the company's top contributors to United Way of Washington County - selected a handful of finalists. A committee of 12 community leaders and past Person of the Year honorees who still live locally selected Morgan from those finalists.

The Herald-Mail gives each Person of the Year a crystal bowl and $1,000 to donate to a civic cause.

Morgan said she will give the money to a charity called Children in Need.

"They work with kids in the greatest need," she said.
