City of Buckhannon Mayor David McCauley, right, honored Bill Nicholson as the fifth Buckhannon Exemplary Service Testimonial Award recipient. Nicholson has been a substantial contributor to a host of service organizations including the Upshur Parish House, Appalachian Impact, the Kesling Mill Lions Club and the newly reformed Buckhannon Kiwanis Club. Nicholson has served as a referee for Upshur County Youth Soccer, is an active parishioner at Chapel Hill United Methodist Church and is a longstanding member of the Band of Brothers. “If there is a call to service in our community, you can count on Bill Nicholson being among the first people to volunteer,” Mayor David McCauley wrote in the proclamation. Nicholson’s name will be added to a BEST bench planned for Jawbone Park to honor all of the BEST honorees.
