Distinguished Citizen Award Dinner (DCAD)

Thursday June 23, 2022

The Distinguished Citizen Award recognizes extraordinary leadership in the Worcester county area of central Massachusetts. Honoring distinguished citizenship delivers a message to our youth that character counts. Highlighting the example of noteworthy citizens helps to inspire our youth to lead, to accept responsibility, and to care about principles and causes beyond self-interest.

We are pleased to announce the 2022 honoree of the Distinguished Citizen Award is John Zarrella, founder and president of Research Results Inc. in Fitchburg, MA.
