Each year, the Youth Services System Board chooses a person or people to receive the Good Samaritan award in recognition of their work in the community.
This year the YSS Board will celebrate Dr. William Mercer and his work in making our community healthier.
Dr. Mercer will be honored at the Good Samaritan Dinner on Friday, August 19 at 5:30p.m. at the White Palace Ballroom in Wheeling Park.
“The Good Samaritan in Jesus’ parable sees a need and takes action,” says Marc Abraham, YSS Chairperson, “Dr. Mercer does the same thing, working to make a healthy community for all of us.”
