The deadline for nominations is Jan. 18.

The award will be presented Jan. 26 at the Greenville Area Chamber of Commerce Member Banquet. It was established in memory of John D. Murphy by his wife, Susan Murphy, with the help of the Jaycees, to honor individuals who volunteer their time to help the community.

Murphy died in a drowning accident in the mid-1990s.

Last year’s Citizen of the Year was Richard Branum.

Nominations should be sent to gvillejaycees@gmail.com.
