“I would like to nominate long time Tucker resident Dr. Lois Ricci for Citizen of the Month. Lois is a consultant and adjunct faculty member with Kennesaw State University and Clayton State University, where she teaches gerontology courses and the Professional Development in Gerontology Certificate Class. She has also worked with the AARP, Department of Technical and Adult Education, Lifespan Resources, Mercer Senior University and Atlanta Regional Commission, just to name a few. With her extensive and successful background, Lois was a logical choice to chair the Tucker Civic Association’s Lifelong Community Committee when she first joined a few years back.
I have never met a person more dedicated and determined than Lois. She has a servant’s heart and does what she does, not for accolades, but because she cares and loves her fellow humans. Over the last few years I have had the pleasure to get to know her better each day and I can truly say Tucker is a better place to live because of her and all her hard work.
With her leadership the Tucker Civic Association partnered with the Georgia Department of Health on the Yellow Dot Program. Lois also championed the campaign to join the World Health Organization and their Age-Friendly City Network. It was through her vision and leadership that the City of Tucker earned the designation of an Age-Friendly City.
Thank you, Lois, for all that you do for Tucker!”
Nomination by Bob Espy, TCA President
