Stamford's 2012 Citizen of the Year, Jami Sherwood, was honored with a City tradition Wednesday. Her name and picture, now on display at the Government Center.
"Thank you all so much. This is such an honor and I am among such amazing people," said Sherwood.
Sherwood has dedicated 20 years to Curtain Call, the longest running community theatre in Fairfield County. She's also volunteered her time for the Stamford Museum and Nature Center, St. Leo's Church, the Mill River Collaborative, the Center for Sexual Assault Crisis Counseling and Education and the Downtown Special Services District.
"I've worked with her on many different issues. I don't volunteer as much as she does, I don't have as much time," said Ernie Orgera.
"A lot of the things I do are just things I normally would do because I just love the people that I work with, I love the organizations I'm involved with. So to be recognized for that is really special," said Sherwood.
Sherwood will be honored at the 68th annual Citizen of the Year dinner, May 7 at the Italian Center. Visit Stamfordcoty.org for more information.
