2017-2018 Citizen Winner

Lanette Huddleston


Lanette is a very dedicated and hard-working woman. She first moved to Jasper County over 30 years ago from Crawford County. Since then she has become a positive and encouraging pillar of our community.

Lanette is a part of the Eagles Club, ABATE of Illinois, 100 Women Who Care and Eagle Country Water Works.  She has been involved in numerous activities, sponsorships and fundraising events.  It doesn't seem to matter what the activity is for, Lanette is always there working to make sure the event is a success.

She's mentored many young people throughout Jasper County. She has even bought school clothes, supplies, and sports equipment for quite a few a few young people that couldn't afford them.  Lanette isn't looking for anything in return, she just wants all young people to have a chance to become a success.

Lanette is one of the kindest, most supportive, most generous people living in Jasper County and has a huge desire to help people and to make a difference in our community.

Congratulations Lanette Huddleston on being the 2017-2018 Citizen of the Year!
