The Myrick Award recognizes a Piscataquis County resident, business or organization that exemplifies Pete Myrick's concern for and commitment to education, economic development and/or civic leadership in the region.
Piscataquis County Economic Development Strategy
Under the direction of the Executive Director, the Grant Specialist will research, draft, administer, manage and report on grants supporting the work of the PCEDC, Piscataquis County and municipalities, and other partnering organizations and initiatives. This position will increase grant funding from local, regional, state, and national government sources, private foundations, and corporate foundations in support of the projects designated by the Executive Director.
“This has been an unusual year, to say the least, for the PCEDC and you folks,” Shea said. He said despite the challenges, the PCEDC still worked to provide an approximate six-time return on investment made in the council and facilitated the awarding of about $540,000 in CDBG funds.
As the past president of PCEDC Tom has given this award to other deserving members of Piscataquis County and now it’s his turn to be on the other side of that handshake. We can’t think of anyone more deserving of this award and we know Pete would be pleased to see Tom Goulette receive this years Myrick Award.
