Maybe it's a parent, a teacher, a scout leader, a coach. Maybe it's an elected official, a civic association leader, a school board trustee, a village mayor, or other community leader.
In a community such as Hauppauge there are undoubtedly plenty of people across town to look up to, and we'd like to recognize those people by asking you to nominate them for our "Greatest Person" honor.
In the coming weeks we'll accept your nominations to name Hauppauge's Greatest Person. Community members will later have the chance to vote on the final result.
Submit your nominations as a comment below or email editor Sara Walsh at sara-megan.walsh to participate. Please include your full name and the reason why you have chosen the person your are nominating.
The individual named Greatest Person will be featured in an upcoming Patch story.
