Veteran, businessman, Weisman named Citizen of Year in Nashua
H. Robert Weisman, a partner at Weisman Tessier Lambert and Halloran, was awarded the honor on Wednesday during the Chamber’s 85th annual gala.
Weisman has also been active on the board of trustees at Rivier University, Salvation Army Advisory Board, Nashua Heart Fund and Community Chest. In addition, he received an honorary humanitarian degree from Rivier University in 1994, and was a Quality of Life recipient in 1990, says the release.
Chris Williams, president of the Greater Nashua Chamber of Commerce, said it is never easy choosing one Citizen of the Year when there is a large group of deserving leaders in Nashua.
Frank Teas, president of the Nashua Bank and the presenting sponsor of the gala, told the audience that Weisman was the unanimous choice by this year’s selection committee, which is made up exclusively of those who have received the same honor in the past.
“Naming someone Nashua’s Citizen of the Year is an honor we do not take lightly. The greater Nashua region has had a long line of great leaders in its history — leaders in politics, business, education, nonprofits and religion,” said Williams. “With so many people who contribute so much to our community, it’s never easy to select one from those that have served so many.”
