Peterson honored with Service to Youth Award

The Youth Service Bureau Inc. honored District 4 Commissioner and Board Chair Myra Peterson on Dec. 20 with its Service to Youth Award.

Among other contributions, Peterson plays a key role in coordinating the South Washington County Garden Tour, which has raised thousands of dollars for Youth Service Bureau programs since 1998.

In presenting the award, Youth Service Bureau President David Hines said Peterson’s support shape both the organization and the lives of those it serves.

“I think it’s fair to say that without her the Youth Service Bureau wouldn’t look like it does today, and I’m sure there are a lot of kids who, although they don’t know it, owe a great deal to her,” Hines said.
