Extraordinary Citizen Award to Clay Ross

Home State Bank announced last week that Clay Ross is the winner of its Extraordinary Citizen Award for July.

Tori Riley nominated Ross and acknowledged his behind-the-scenes work around our community.
Riley explained, “Along with being a driving force of the Community Players of Greene County, Clay does important behind-the-scenes work at community events like Relay for Life and the Bell Tower Festival, stepping in to help with logistics without being asked. Moving cement barricades for the Bell Tower Festival inflatables and helping with small details for the Bill Riley Talent Search are just two recent examples of Clay’s volunteerism. He seldom gets thanked for what he does, but I think he’s an extraordinary citizen.”

The award is a local award given by Home State Bank to an extraordinary Greene County citizen or group who has gone above and beyond by giving their time and/or resources to benefit the community. The citizen(s) must be nominated by another Greene County resident. Winners get to select an organization to which the bank will donate $100 in his or her name.

Ross chose to give the $100 donation from Home State Bank to the Greene County Singers, a community chorus open to singers of all ages.

County residents who want to nominate a community member for a future award can stop in the bank and pick up a form or visit online at hsbankiowa.com/award for an electronic submission.
