Shining a spotlight on deserving people making a difference in Springfield and central Illinois is one of the best parts of my job.So I am happy to open nominations for our brightest light, the 2022 First Citizen Award.Since 1963, The State Journal-Register has celebrated volunteers who devote endless hours and energy to projects or programs that made life better for others. This year's honoree will join that long list of outstanding people who answered the call to serve time and again.Last year's winner, Richard "Dick" Hart, was one of those people.
