Campbell Named Lyons Citizen of the Year
Thursday, 21 March 2013


March 21--  Sabrina Culpepper Campbell was named the 2013 Lyons Citizen of the Year in the annual banquet held at Chatter’s Restaurant sponsored by the Lyons Merchants Association.  Campbell is only the fourth woman recipient of the award that began back in 1971.  Campbell’s father, the late C. Warren Culpepper was the 1988 recipient of the award, making them the only father/daughter combo to receive the honor. 


“I am just shocked, speechless really, and people who know me know I am never speechless.  I am just thrilled because I enjoy doing things for others and I enjoy volunteering and to be recognized with the recipients who have gotten it before is just amazing.  Thank you so much.”  She added, “I love Lyons.  I love the school system here.  I’ve worked in education for over 30 years and I love volunteering here in Lyons.


She went on to state that she received her sense of community involvement from her father.  “I can remember being a child and daddy would at all times be volunteering or heading up a committee and I think I got my love of organizing from him.  He loved to do things for others and I think he taught me well.”
