Donna Martin, was the recipient of the 2013 Citizen of the Year based on her dedication to helping students from all over the Kenton community. Donna started a tutoring program over eight years ago and it has gone from ten to over thirty students. It includes transportation from school to tutoring, then home afterwards. Her dedication is not just limited
to tutoring and homework, but also to teaching them to work hard at reaching goals.

Brim's Imports and Brim's Imports Auto Salvage received the 2013 Business of the Year based on their commitment to giving back to the Hardin County Community. Tom Brim accepted the award on behalf of Brim's Imports, which opened as a bicycle shop in 1956 and has grown into one of the largest auto dealers in our area, as well as a supplier of foreign auto parts. With their support, many organizations, groups, and clubs in Hardin County have prospered.

The Hardin Pioneer Aktion Club was awarded the 2013 Community Service Award based on their dedication to helping others and improving our community. Josh Gammon accepted the award on behalf of The Hardin Pioneer Aktion Club, which is twenty-five enthusiastic and dedicated individuals, all of whom are adults with a disability. Co-sponsored by
the Ada and Kenton Kiwanis, in conjunction with Simon Kenton HARCO Industries, this group's members strive to return to their community the benefit, help and caring they have received.
