City Council Names Terry Moreman 2016 Citizen of the Year

Citizen of Year 2016 - Terry Moreman
June 7, 2017 - The City Council began recognizing outstanding efforts of citizens in 1990, and has continued this tradition for more than 25 years.   

Honorees are individuals or entities whose achievements may have gone unrecognized in some settings, but who have improved Island life through a broad base of community service, fundraising, or other means.  This year's recipient (for 2016) is Terry Moreman, who has made a significant impact on the community over the course of a lifetime.
She has advocated for Mercer Island residents big and small.  She has appeared at City Council meetings and served on countless boards and committees.  She has influenced the decision-making process on everything from school functions to Town Center's revitalization.
Terry is a 38-year Island resident, and served as the Executive Director of the Mercer Island Chamber of Commerce for over 25 years, producing well-received events like Town Center trick-or-treating and Art UnCorked.  In addition to building a strong and respected business core in Mercer Island, she has also played a significant role in the success of so many organizations: the Historical Society, Sister City Association, Farmers Market, Boys and Girls Club, PTA, Mercer Island Preschool Association, Community Fund, and the Mercer Island Schools Foundation.
Regarding the purpose of the Chamber, Terry was fond of saying: "We are a catalyst - a common vehicle through which business and professional people work together for the common good of the community." The Council considers Terry an inspiring catalyst herself, and believe it is citizens like her that make Mercer Island such an amazing place to live, work, and visit.
