Vicksburg Police Chief Penny Jones was nominated as Citizen of the Year by Omega Psi Phi, Inc. Eta Tau chapter, which is based out of Port Gibson and serves Claiborne, Jefferson and Warren counties.
“Citizen of the Year is selected each year from outstanding citizens nominated for unique contributions to humanity,” Christopher Barnett, Mississippi State President said. “The nominee should be a person of local, regional and international recognition and who are acclaimed by a significant segment of society for outstanding contributions to the welfare of mankind.”
The Eta Tau chapter presented Chief Jones with a plaque commemorating her nomination. The nomination will be submitted along with those from other chapters across the state before a final selection will be chosen.
“Her accolades speak for themselves,” Barnett added.
