HEATHSVILLE—The Northumberland Association for Progressive Stewardship (NAPS) on Saturday, October 14, presented the 2017 Distinguished Citizen Award to Bill Estell.

“In my tenure as NAPS president I presented six of these awards to very special people and never in my wildest dreams thought about receiving one,” said Estell.

The award was presented at the NAPS annual social at the Bay Quarter Shores Community Club House.

Estell said the award had special meaning because it came from “my NAPS family.” He noted contributions by NAPS in environment, community outreach and especially educational opportunities as the core values of what NAPS represents.
