Baltimore County Fifth District Citizens Of The Year
PERRY HALL - Baltimore County Councilman David Marks has announced the recipients of the Fifth District Citizens of the Year Award.
Marks started the program in 2011 with the goal of recognizing and thanking residents for exceptional service to the community. This year’s recipients volunteered their time, energy, and money to make District 5 the best place it can be.
“I want to thank all our outstanding community leaders and volunteers and particularly acknowledge the hard work of our Citizens of the Year,” Marks said.
The 2022 Citizens of the Year are:
- Cathy Balcar and Drena Fertitta, for their support of our community through Marian Preparatory Academy and food and household goods collection.
- Robert Chaney, for his leadership in the Kingsville Volunteer Fire Company and on the Kingsville Independence Day Committee, and for improving the Kingsville Triangle.
- Al Corpisz, for his work to improve traffic safety in the Avondale Road area of Carney.
- Daniel Carl Torsch Foundation for its efforts to help vulnerable individuals combat substance abuse and support recovery housing and rehabilitation.
- Angie Feehly, for her contributions to Kingsville Elementary School and the Kingsville community.
- Ruth Hens, for her efforts to clean up and beautify the waterways and neighborhoods of Carney
- George Majchrzak, for improving the Kingsville Triangle.
Due to redistricting, some communities in District 5 are not represented on the list. Redistricting moved the Towson area to the Sixth District and added White Marsh and Middle River to the Fifth District in early December. These communities will be included in the 2023 citizens of the year.
