Watertown, NY – The Greater Watertown – North Country Chamber of Commerce announced Mary Corriveau as the recipient of the 2015 Israel A. Shapiro Citizenship Award at a press conference Friday, November 20, 2015, 11:00am, at Hilton Garden Inn. This is the 64thAnnual Shapiro Award.
The award was established by Arnold I. Shapiro to honor the memory of his father, a long time business leader in the community. A director of the Chamber at the time of his father’s death in 1952, Mr. Shapiro sensed a need in Watertown for a symbolic annual recognition of exceptional leadership on behalf of our city. Over the years, the award has been presented to many deserving individuals for their contributions and service to our community. This award is made on the basis of outstanding citizenship or for outstanding contribution in civic or social welfare activity. Entries were judged on five key areas (outstanding citizenship, achievement, leadership, dedication, and motivation) by a panel of past Shapiro recipients, Chamber board members, and an Athena Award recipient.
The award will be presented formally at the Chamber’s annual dinner on Thursday, February 11, 2016, at the Hilton Garden Inn.
The event is sponsored by ABC50/The North Country CW and Slack Chemical Co. Inc.
