Mary Corriveau was named today as winner of the 2015 Shapiro Award for Citizenship in a ceremony at the Hilton Garden Inn. As the 64th winner of the honor, Ms. Corriveau will be recognized at the Chamber of Commerce dinner in February.
Ms. Corriveau was joined by her husband James who this week retired after a 41 year career with the US Army, most recently at Fort Drum.
The Corriveaus came to Watertown in 1974 and Ms. Corriveau was city manager prior to her retirement three years ago.
From my perspective her greatest accomplishment were her tireless efforts to establish a liason between the community and the Army at Fort Drum.
