Sharon Betcher received a Mayor’s Excellence Award pin at a Langley City Council meeting on July 17.

Betcher was recognized for her contribution to the Langley Ethics Training and Advisory Board. Mayor Tim Callison said she joined as the board was going through a major change in its charter and helped the board complete the work in a “very timely and logical fashion.”

“Thank you so much, I’m honored,” Betcher said as she received her award.

Betcher recently stepped down from her position on the board and will serve as an alternate in the future.

The city awards the pins to individuals or group of individuals either in a city staff, volunteer or citizen capacity “whose contribution to the vision, mission and goals of the City of Langley are characterized by the highest standards of quality and excellence.”
