Today the Area Agency on Aging and community partners hosted the Older Americans Month celebration.
The celebration started by honoring four outstanding panhandle seniors who made significant contributions to the community.
The four people honored were Roy McCoy, Richard Stoops, John Wagoner, and Terry Wagoner.
McCoy is the former chief meteorologist at KAMR Local 4 News from 1973 until 1997.
“It means everything, especially to be recognized for the work that I’ve did with ASCA, with the library, I was on the board, the library board and the ASCA board,” McCoy said. “Not just a few things, but quite a few things.”
After the celebration, there was a talent show hosted by Region 16 Education Conference Center. Participants were 60 years or older.
