Citizens of Character

Belleville has many citizens who can be looked upon as “Citizens of Character”.  BASIC is not only looking for persons who are frequently recognized, but especially the unsung individual.  The “unsung individual”, has helped make a positive difference in the realms where we live, work and play, and thus enhancing the quality of life in Belleville.  The “Citizens” who demonstrate character do so through an ongoing process; it isn’t defined by a job, an event, a project and certainly not a means to draw attention to one’s self.  It is doing the right thing at the right time. Nominate an “unsung individual” that you know as a “Citizen of Character” by filling out the form below and submitting the completed nomination form by October 3rd, 2014 to:
The BASIC Initiative
512 West Main Street

Belleville, IL 62220
