2013 Citizen of the Year Heidi introduced the 2014 Citizen of the Year, "The 2014 Citizen of the Year hails from a farm in small town Iowa. Though the Citizen was never a fan of doing chores on the farm, she received her exercise as a child push mowing the large yard and other farm areas.

Our Citizen was very involved in her school growing up standing out as a leader on the Student Council and in athletics. She was always her own person and wasn’t afraid not to follow the crowd.

When it came time to head off to college, this person always knew what path she wanted to take. The helping profession was the career choice for her. She has been described by many as caring, compassionate, kind, dependable, and responsible. All these have led to advancements in her career as she now heads a very successful unit in a local hospital and is noted for being top notch in being a provider of patient care.

Our Citizen is active in the community of Leon. As a Chamber member, she is seen as organized, creative, and genuine. If you want to get the job done, down to the last detail, this is your go to gal. She doesn’t ever brag about her successes or skills but just does things the right way from the get go and gets involved because it is the right thing to do. She is humble by nature, gentle by spirit, and easily attracts people to her with her warm smile.

Her passion runs deep for community pride and serving her church. Her roles in organizing the Communitywide Clean Up, Masonic Park Renovation, and growing the Loving Chapel Sunday School program from a dozen to nearly 40 youth have been invaluable to our community.

Even someone as talented as our Citizen needs a break from all her committees. She can often be found at “the farm” or somewhere outdoors on the weekend playing and enjoying twins Breegan and Lucas and helping husband Cody.
The list could go on and on about this individual. At this time, it is my honor to recognize Mrs. Maggie Lindsey as the 2014 Citizen of the Year. "
