Citizen of the Month - Nancy Qarmout

Nancy Qarmout

My name is Jamey Wilson, event manager with the Old Town Tucker Merchants’ Association, and I would like to nominate Nancy Qarmout for Citizen of the Month.

Nancy, her wife Leanne and I have been friends for over a decade. We went a step further and became family after they introduced me to Leanne’s cousin, Neely, on a blind (somewhat ambush) date at Local 7. Thanks to them, we’ve been married for over seven years and have added two adorable kids to the mix (as have they).

If you’ve been to any events on Main Street in the past 10 years, you’ve probably seen Nancy. She’s the one you’ll see coordinating vendors, finding new and fun things to bring in for the kids, and generally being a point of contact for the community. She helps with the Tucker Chili Cook-Off, Taste of Tucker and Holiday on Main Street. She’s also responsible for starting the Halloween Trunk or Treat and the Tucker Farmers Market, which has become a go-to for people in and around the City. During COVID, she and her vendors seamlessly switched to an online ordering system to keep the patrons active and the vendors prosperous.

Nancy exudes Tucker Pride in everything she does. She’s hardworking, dedicated, and committed to the advancement of the community and keeping Tucker engaged. Nancy makes a point to know everybody and lends an ear whenever possible; for many people around here, she is Tucker.
