A community is the sum of its people, and Washington County is blessed with a wealth of active and interesting men and women who move us ever forward and make living here a more positive experience. They are the ones we turn to when we need solutions, ideas and comfort, the ones who realize that a community functions best when every individual is given opportunity and care. Personal recognition is frequently the last thing on their agendas. They act because it's the right thing to do, not out of a need for accolades.
