Arnie and Kelliann Palu received the Quarter Council Citizen Award at Monday’s Bishop City Council meeting.
“To a lot of people, (the Palus) are super duper special, a great example,” said Mayor Laura Smith. “It’s people like you that make this a great community.”
Bishop native Kelliann has worked at Dwayne’s Friendly Pharmacy for 19 years. She is music director, elder and choir member at First Presbyterian Church. She also is the organizer of the clown troupe that performs at the Mule Days and Christmas parades, Smith said.
Nebraska native Arnie has been with KIBS/KBOV Radio for 12 years. He coaches Bishop Union High School junior varsity football and is a former Bishop Little League president.
The Palus are also volunteer leaders with the Christian, non-denominational Young Life Eastern Sierra youth organization.

Pastor Eddie Davis’ voice cracked as he added to the Council’s praises of the couple. “They would never lift themselves up and toot their own horn. They are like parents to hundreds of kids in this community,” taking kids to lunch, encouraging them to get their lives on track, to pursue their dreams.
Arnie said, “We’re blessed to be a part of (the community.”
