Staff Writer

Jeff Kuntz and Shirley Sharp were named the 2019 Man and Woman of the Year at the Groundhog Banquet Saturday evening.

"Volunteering is important to keep you young, to keep you active, to keep you healthy and to make a better world for your children, your grandchildren and, in my case, my great-grandchildren," Sharp said.

Sharp was extremely honored to be given the award, and felt a sense of pride in knowing all the women who had come before her and received the award.
"I am so honored to be named the Woman of the Year, and to know that I'm following in the footsteps of other women from Punxsutawney who have given very much back to their communities," Sharp said.

"Punxsutawney is a great place to live, and I'm very happy that I was able to grow up in Punxsy and stay in Punxsy and get a job that I love in Punxsy and help out the community however I can," Kuntz stated.
