The monthly CityMaker award was introduced to the City Commission in March of 2017, by former Mayor Howard Wiggs and his wife, Linda Bagley Wiggs. The idea, as the details of the CityMaker Criteria suggest, is to celebrate the unsung heroes of our community.
“These CityMakers play their individual roles as entrepreneurs, activists, performers, students, artists, organizers — and otherwise engaged citizens — who make creating a positive emotional connection with our community their personal mission. CityMakers make things interesting, memorable, and unique.”
The recipients of the CityMaker award from 2017 include Ashley Troutman, Gary Clark, Ana Rivera, Dr. Richard Cardosi, Brian Seeley, Chrissanne Long, Lisa Oliver, David Collins, and Lakeland Rocks.
As we transition into a new year, we invite community sponsors, like Bank of Central Florida who stepped in help make this project possible by financially supporting the effort in 2017, to get involved.
With the support of our newly-elected Mayor Bill Mutz and with the generosity of community members like Bank of Central Florida, we hope to continue to recognize the unsung heroes, that work tirelessly to give their love and passion to our city in thousands of unique ways!
