Maybe it's an elected official, a parent, a teacher, a Scout leader, a business owner, a coach. Maybe it's a civic association leader, a school board trustee, a local volunteer, or other community leader.
In a community such as Riverhead there are undoubtedly plenty of people across town to look up to and admire, and who dedicate their time and hearts toward the betterment of Riverhead.
We'd like to recognize those individuals by asking you to nominate them for our "Greatest Person" honor.
In the coming weeks we'll accept your nominations to name Riverhead'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 Lisa Finn at Lisa.Finn@patch.com to participate. Please include your full name and the reason why you have chosen the person you are nominating.
The individual named Greatest Person will be featured in an upcoming Patch story.
