Sewickley Herald names Man, Woman, Citizen of the Year
Each year, Sewickley Herald staff members have the difficult task of deciding who to select as our Man, Woman and Citizen of the Year.
As evidenced by the number of nominations we've received, we know there is no shortage of people who do so much for the community and who are deserving of this honor.
Thank you to all who took the time to nominate someone in the community to be considered for our 2013 Man, Woman and Citizen of the Year.
After much consideration, the Herald staff is pleased to announce this year's honorees.

• Carolyn Toth has been selected as the Herald's 2013 Woman of the Year.
