Editorial: Daily News proud to honor Citizen of the Year, finalists

The Galveston County Daily News, May 30, 2022

“The Daily News is proud to have named Dr. Pei-Yong Shi as its 35th annual Citizen of the Year,” wrote Michael Smith, editor. “Naming the one from among that group of worthy citizens always is a hard decision for the panel of judges who reviewed and ranked each of the 20 applications.
