Whitters honored
for service

Paul Whitters received the "Truman V. Glenn Memorial Award" at the 17th annual presentation on Saturday evening at the Platte County Courthouse during Platte City's holiday lighting ceremony.

This award is given to someone who has made a significant contribution to the betterment of the Platte City community over the years.

The award is named for Truman Glenn, who is noted for his contributions to the local community, including Lions Club, Platte City Chamber of Commerce, Platte County Industrial Commission, and serving as mayor from 1976 until his sudden death in 1984.

Whitters is an active member of the Platte City Christian Church serving as a deacon, past president of the church board, and secretary of the Men's Class. He is also a life member of VFW Post 4055 in Platte City, a member of a pioneer Platte County family, active in Platte County Historical and Genealogical Society, and has contributed to research in the county's history.

Whitters is someone who prefers to be a "behind the scenes" kind of person who is actually more comfortable helping others without any fanfare and who has made significant contributions of his time and talents to many people in the Platte City community.

"I think they were a little generous in giving it to me," states Whitters.
