Elks honor Frost as Distinguished Citizen


Mechell Frost, right, director of the Highland County Senior Citizens Center, was honored Tuesday with the Hillsboro Elks’ Distinguished Citizenship Award for 2015-16. Frost was presented with the award by Dan Pearce, left, past Exalted Ruler, current trustee and grant coordinator for the Elks. Frost, who is also a Hillsboro Rotarian, was honored because of the senior center’s participation in the Jobs and Family Services Summer Youth Program funded by the Elks, and for allowing special needs students supported by the Elks to perform planting and mulching projects at the center, as well as her all-round contributions to the community, said Pearce. About $12-$18,000 a year in grants are awarded locally through the Elks National Foundation. The award was made at the Hillsboro Rotary Club meeting at the Ponderosa Banquet Center.
