Sewickley Herald names Man, Woman, Citizens of the Year
The Sewickley Herald has an incredibly difficult task each year deciding who to select as our annual Man, Woman and Citizens of the Year.
And, this year, is no different.
We were pleasantly inundated with your nominations of residents, school staff, spouses, friends, elected officials, and so many more individuals who all work to make the Sewickley Valley a better place.
From emails to letters mailed or slid under our door, we read all of them to help gain a better perspective of those who help shape this community.
Thank you to everyone who submitted a nomination and to those who encouraged others to submit recommendations.
After much consideration, the Herald is pleased to announce this year's honorees.
For his leadership and ability to unify not only a history-making football team but also a community, Jerry Veshio has been named the Sewickley Herald's Man of the Year.
For her dedication to making children in the community feel safe and special at more than just the moment they enter her crosswalk in Edgeworth, Melanie Moul has been named the Sewickley Herald's Woman of the Year.
For their community spirit and selflessness to the people they have served, brothers Mike and Frank Yankello have been named the Sewickley Herald's Citizens of the Year.
For her dedication to leading peers within her school community, Katherine Rostek has been named the Sewickley Herald's Emerging Citizen.
In the coming weeks, learn more about these honorees through stories and photos in the Herald — in print and online.
