Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Middle Smithfield Township's Person of the Year was not awarded and no events were held for 2020 or 2021. In January 2022, the Township held a Volunteer Appreciation Banquet, at which two long-time residents - Bob Huffman and Ray White - were honored. The Person of the Year Award was revived for 2022 and the banquet was held again for the first time in January 2023.
Bob Huffman is not only a life-long resident, but is also one of the township's most dedicated and involved community members. Bob came to Middle Smithfield Township as a Historical Commission member upon its inception in 2013.
Ray became a member of the Middle Smithfield Township Golf Committee upon its creation in 2010 until his passing in 2020. He was also an avid supporter of Mady's Angels and the Marshalls Creek Fire Co.
