HOLYOKE, MA (WGGB/WSHM) - A ceremony was held Saturday morning at Holyoke High School that recognized our servicemen and women.
This year, a few residents and important figures were honored.
Citizen of the Year went to Colleen Chesmore, Veteran of the Year went to Richard Purcell, and Public Servant of the Year went to Emil Morales.
You may remember Officer Morales when we first introduced you to him back in August.
He responded to a fatal shooting in the city, and, minutes later, helped deliver a baby.
The ceremony was hosted by the United Veterans of Holyoke, and the Holyoke Veterans Services Department.
