Citizen of the Year

Fredia Carter

Each year the Westmoreland Chamber of Commerce reaches out to our community to ask local residents to nominate someone who they think has been community driven. And by that we mean, doing anything and everything they could to help others in our community.

This year's choice was Fredia Carter. While looking at the many that were nominated, the committee searched for an individual with attributes in the following areas:

  • Commitment
  • Leadership
  • Outreach
  • Integrity
  • Community Vision
  • Creativity
  • Support
