Chamber to salute Nesbitt for service

MEADVILLE — Dr. John Nesbitt of Meadville is this year’s recipient of the Gov. Raymond P. Shafer Award for Distinguished Community Service.

The award recognizes a person who has made a singular contribution to the quality of life in western Crawford County.

The presentation will take place at the Meadville-Western Crawford County Chamber of Commerce’s annual Awards Night on Feb. 20 at The Movies at Meadville beginning at 6 p.m.

In addition to his long service as a physician in the Meadville area, Nesbitt has given his support to community organizations, including serving as the volunteer medical director of the Meadville Area Free Clinic; a founding member and board director of the Crawford Heritage Community Foundation; and active member and leader within First Presbyterian Church of Meadville.

“I’m flattered and surprised,” Nesbitt said Wednesday. “This is right out of the blue.”
