• To Dave Wright, the retired of the YMCA’s Camp Tecumseh, on being named the second recipient of the Charles Carroll award. The award, presented by the Carroll County Chamber of Commerce, recognizes an individual’s spirit, dedication and passion for Carroll County. Chamber director Julia Leahy said Wright was being recognized because of the difference he had made in the lives of thousands of children and adults who’ve stayed at the YMCA’s camp or attended programs there. “He was always willing to go above and beyond and cared very deeply for his family and friends. Dave was a leader, a mentor and a generous man who believed in others and his community,” she said.
