Camas, WA — Nominated by Coach Dale Rule for his efforts to help a local family in need, Camas resident Bill Criddle received the Mill Town Pride Award at Monday night’s Camas School Board meeting.
Criddle, along with the help of others, raised funds to help a family pay past due electricity bills, and also give them a credit with Clark Public Utilities.
“I am honored, humbled and a little embarrassed to have received this award from the Camas School Board,” said Criddle. “Personally, I wish that no one knew what we had done. I say ‘we’ as this was not just me. This was our community. Several people, that without asking who it was for, and wanting to remain anonymous, just stepped up to help when needed. This is Camas! I just happened to be the one that sent a text to a few friends. I know that each of us can make a positive impact in our community if we look for ways to serve others. Thank you Dale for the nomination and incredible things you said and thank you CSD for the award.”
The Mill Town Pride Award recognizes local community members who do things to improve life in and around Camas.
