Dr. David Schwartz named "Person of the Year"

Dr. David Schwartz was named "Person of the Year" at the Waukon Chamber of Commerce Annual Banquet held Friday, February 22 at the Waukon Banquet Center. The award is given to an individual who "has made a difference in the community through dedication and service to the community," and the nomination information for Dr. Schwartz included specific examples of that very characteristic he possesses, including his "outstanding bedside manner and lifelong learning and support for health care in a rural setting". In addition to his services as a health care provider, the nomination also cites his volunteer efforts at area sporting events, including coaching of youth sports, as well as the many other activities he volunteers for through his family's involvement in the school district and the Waukon Chamber of Commerce. Pictured above with Dr. Schwartz at the presentation of the "Person of the Year" award are his family members and several family friends.
