There are certain people that you meet in life that seem to leave an impression wherever they go. Those individuals with selfless spirits and hearts made of gold. They shine light into our lives on dark days and always seem to be there with a hand up or strong shoulder.

While these individuals live their lives looking for nothing in return – their kindness toward others and devotion to the world around them is something that deserves to be recognized… and celebrated! That’s exactly what we plan to do this fall, at our annual Meridian Stars Awards.

But who are the shining Stars of Meridian? You tell us! My team is currently seeking nominations for Meridian residents and businesses that are devoted to making Meridian what it is today… the best place to work, live, and raise a family. Do you know someone that has a passion for improving the quality of life and safety in their neighborhood? A person or business that is committed to preserving the spirit of Meridian? A neighbor, student, or senior that is constantly going above and beyond to ensure that this great City will be a better place because of them?

Last year, we honored an amazing group of people. CLICK HERE to learn about the 2018 Meridian Stars. I expect this year will be no different, as I am constantly meeting amazing people in our community that humble and inspire me.  

Our categories for this year’s Meridian Stars Awards include: Youth of the Year, Senior of the Year, Neighbor of the Year and both Small and Large Business of the Year. We plan to recognize these special individuals and organizations at the upcoming Town Hall Meeting (October 23) at Touchmark at Meadow Lake Village.

So, be on the lookout and when you find a Star – tell us about them! You can easily nominate HERE and we welcome as many nominations as you’d like to submit. All nominees, awardees, and the public will be invited to celebrate these amazing humans at our Town Hall. Be sure to join us!
