She was all smiles afterward as her daughter, Shan Burklow relieved her behind the mic so she could rest her voice.
In the midst of an already festive and exciting evening, Leadership DeKalb representatives Jen Sherwood and Beth and Darrell Gill, were given the opportunity to recognize well deserving leaders of the community with the annual Community Leader of 2017 and the Legacy Leader Awards. The Community Leader of the Year is awarded to the individual who most emulates the definition of community trustee and servant-leader in his or her recent service to DeKalb County. Nominees are considered who have made a significant and positive impact on our county specifically in 2017 and in a capacity beyond their professional role.
