Duane Gates is Monticello’s 2013 Citizen of the Year. His selection was made public this week by the Monticello Chamber of Commerce & Industry, Monticello Lions and Monticello Rotary.“It’s a tremendous honor,” said Gates, who is preparing to retire after a historic run as Monticello’s Community Education program director. Gates said he was humbled by being named this year’s Monticello Citizen of the Year. “It’s really something that you don’t think about,” he said. “I’ve been in the community a long time, but that doesn’t necessarily mean anything. It’s kind of fun, reflecting on it.”
