Chuck Haney

According to Haney, a dedication to community is the primary factor in deciding each year’s recipient.  “Involvement is a big thing in the civic and pubic service areas,” said Haney,” They do not have to be, nor have many of them been, elected officials.  Some have worked with Operation Help, Relay For Life, the Salvation Army or various other organizations.”

Haney said the award is named after a man who truly believed in serving his area.” It’s a great award in the fact that it recognizes and salutes one of the great public servants of Livingston County,” said Haney,” He was a commissioner and presiding commissioner and the position was called judge, so he was Judge Hoyt to everyone.  It’s an award that now represents all of the work he did for Livingston County as a public servant.’

Nominations can be submitted to a committee member or the RSVP office.
