Celebrating Outstanding Involvement
Katie Riley and Terry Hofferber Moore received the 17th Harold M. Haynes Citizen Involvement Award, honoring outstanding leadership in engaging community members in Washington County civic affairs.
The Committee for Citizen Involvement (CCI) held a presentation December 15, 2015 in Hillsboro with 41 attendees.
Public officials and special guests came to recognize the honorees.
Metro Councilor Kathryn Harrington said Mrs. Hofferber Moore’s efforts made transportation planning become more carefully conducted, particularly for vulnerable users.
Mrs. Riley’s campaign was praised by Washington County Commissioners Greg Malinowski and Dick Schouten, and each man shared personal anecdotes about how Mrs. Hofferber Moore positively influenced them.
Family, friends, neighbors and colleagues of the award recipients filled the room along with CCI members to show their appreciation.
