The potential winners are Terry Paul, Ron Ditzfeld, Tony Gallagher, Deidre Esquivel, and Cheri Hereen.  Members of the organization came up with the idea for the award five years ago.  “We started thinking about what kind of qualities make a person like this up, and we came up with a few of them,” said LaCasse,”We’ve got community giving, a philanthropic spirit, kindness, generosity, character, and leadership.”  Voting is currently underway to determine the finalists.  More information can be found at
