Hughes' honored as Citizens of the Year


Bernard "Bernie" Hughes '48 and his wife Jean were two of three individuals named Citizens of the Year by the Superior/Douglas County Chamber of Commerce in September 1995. They served as grand marshalls of the Spirit of the Lake Fall Fest parade and were honored with a recognition ceremony at Barker's Island.

Between them, this duo has a long list of contributions to the Superior/Douglas County area.

The Hughes are retired educators who continue to be very active volunteers. They sit on opposites sides of the political fence but have put up a united front in giving of themselves.

Bernie serves on the board of the Superior/Douglas County YMCA and gives of his time to the United Way, the Shriners Children Hospitals, the Elks, the Noon Lions Club and the Douglas County Commission on Aging.

Jean, who also attended Stout for a short time in 1944, remains extremely active in her education field as a member of several professional organizations. She is a dedicated chamber ambassador, election judge and leader in the Lady Elks.
