Distinguished Citizen Award

Thursday September 30, 2021

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 2021 honoree of the Distinguished Citizen Award is John Zarrella, founder and president of Research Results Inc. in Fitchburg, MA
