Who are This Year's Models in Lexington? Model Citizens? Visionaries? Innovators? Big Thinkers who are also long on Action?
Every year, Ace celebrates "This Year's Models" with a special year-end Annual Edition. All year long, the readers nominate Lexingtonians who have made a difference in making Lexington a better place to live.
Past "models" have included Jim Gray (now Mayor Jim Gray); Alltech's Pearse Lyons; Local First's Lori and Hap Houlihan; Latitude's Bruce Burris; SustainLex's Jim Embry; Debra Hensley; Seedleaf's Becca Self; Affrilachian poets Crystal Wilkinson and Frank X Walker (different years); Buster's proprietors Clark and Jessica Case; and many more.
Readers who want to weigh in on "This Year's Models" for 2010 should send a brief email to acelist at aceweekly.com highlighting the considerable virtues of a nominee. Show, don't tell. Tell us a story that exemplifies this person's "model" characteristics. (Be sure to include followup contact info for the person doing the nominating.)
