Re “‘Great supporter’ Patty King is 2018 Citizen of the Year” (News article, Jan. 26):

Congratulations to our own Patty King as The Anniston Star’s Citizen of the Year. We cannot think of a better and more deserving woman to be honored with this title.

She does so much for this community because she loves it and the people in it. Our own Anniston Runners Club is fortunate to have someone so distinguished as King to reach out to.

Sunny may have left big shoes to fill, as she quoted, but she has filled them and willingly trod through our community with those shoes time after time for all these years that she has exceeded most anyone’s imagination.

Patty, thank you so much for your unselfish contributions to this community and keeping Anniston on the map. You are awesome. We love you.

Nancy Grace
