Spotlight On...

Brooke County Veteran of the Year, Tony Paesano


Tony Paesano celebrates with two of his children, John and Toni, and his wife, Lorraine.

Tony was honored as the Brooke County Veteran of the Year last week.Whether serving as a Veteran, an educator, a coach, or a dedicated public servant, Tony has always stayed true to his belief that we live in the greatest state, in the greatest country in the world. Again, it is my privilege to join his friends and family in thanking him for his noble service as he receives this well-deserved recognition.
