TREMONT – A panel of four judges selected Derick Ney, 10-year-old son of Christy and Ricky Ney, Tremont, as the 2016 Citizen of The Year.
Tremont Borough Council members donated some or all of their council pay toward a fund to name a Citizen of the Year.
According to Councilwoman Paulette Yuschock, 10 applicants were received and the four judges reviewed each applicant and selected Ney to receive the title, cash and plaque.
Derick’s application read as follows: Derick is extremely active in his community and takes great pride in helping others. Derick volunteers to help with the Tremont Little League field by cleaning the burn pit and helping his dad do work around the field. He also plays baseball for the Tremont Little League and Fall Ball with the Pine Grove Little League.
Derick cuts grass in the summr for his neighbors and friends, and shovels snow in the winter. Although some people may compensate him monetarily, Dereick also does this for his handicapped neighbors and does not expect any pay.
