Letter: Thanks for great honor

Published 9:49 am Tuesday, March 23, 2010

Words can never express my appreciation of the great honor I received by the Citizen of the Year committee and The Clanton Advertiser. I will always cherish this award as being the greatest of all gifts I have received during my long career as an educator, political leader and civic worker, sharing my life with others.
I will continue to first give thanks to God for his guidance. Secondly, I thank the people that I have working around me. I have a really good team of people that work for the city of Jemison that really deserves a lot of credit for the hard work and dedication that contributes to the progress that the city has made in the last few years.
I would also like to express my gratitude to the many citizens that have called and written cards, and the ones who have stopped by to express thanks and support for me. It really means a lot to me to see our citizens in support of the award that I am honored to have received.
Again, I want to express my sincere appreciation to the Citizen of the Year committee and The Clanton Advertiser for their support.
– Mayor Eddie Reed, Jemison
