City names man citizen of the year

NORT AUGUSTA -- A man who adopted North Augusta as his hometown nearly 50 years ago was named its Citizen of the Year for 1998 on Thursday night. Bill Burriss' credentials as a volunteer reach back almost as many years as he has lived in the city he has called home since 1951, said Nate Wolfe, himself a recipient of the award. "His community service started almost immediately upon arrival in North Augusta," Mr. Wolfe said in presenting the North Augusta Chamber of Commerce's most prestigious award at its annual meeting.
