Stephen Todd was nominated by the Branch-Hillsdale-St. Joseph Community Health Agency and Area Agency on Aging for the “Michigan Aging & Adult Services Agency’s 2021 Senior Citizen of the Year” award.
The award is given to an older adult whose community has been enhanced through their active engagement, volunteerism and selfless acts of service to others. They are often the unsung heroes our communities cannot live without, those special people communities can always count on to help in so many important ways, according to health officer Rebecca Burns.
Burns, who succeeded Todd after his retirement in December 2015, said Todd’s efforts to help the agency during the pandemic have been invaluable. She said Todd volunteered his expertise to assist the agency in planning and designing of the multiple testing and vaccination clinics held in all three counties.
