The Dupree Community Club awarded the 2018 Citizen(s) of the Year Award to Shawn and Kathy Olsen. Below is the nomination letter written by Kimberly and Robert Shannon.
Dear Community Club,
When I think of “Citizen(s) of the Year”, many of our dedicated volunteers come to mind. I especially think of Shawn and Kathy Olsen, a couple who donates their time and talents to help the many facets of our community.
Kathy records the memories of many events in our community with her photography skills. She leads Vacation Bible School at the UCC, attends school board meetings, and has held offices in the Community Club Incorporated and the American Legion Auxiliary.
Shawn has been a Destination Imagination coach, held various offices on the board of the UCC, and is a board member of the Ziebach County Historical Society.
Both Shawn and Kathy are teachers at the Dupree School, active in SDEA, lead youth group (CYU), support the Dupree Tiger Athletic and Academic activities, and help meet needs in the community.
They are a blessing to our community, and work as a team to help each other and
Please consider Shawn and Kathy as worthy recipients of the Citizen of the Year Award.
Kimberly and Robert Shannon
