Join us as we celebrate 2023 Outstanding Citizen of the Year
Since 1968, the Southern Chester County Chamber of Commerce has presented the Outstanding Citizen of the Year award to deserving individuals from our community. Since that time, our community has gathered together annually to honor men and women who have served the community in this manner and, in doing so, received this prestigious award for their service and efforts.
The Southern Chester County Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce Luis Tovar as the 2023 Outstanding Citizen of the YearAward recipient.
Mr. Tovar is an active member of the Kennett Rotary Club and a volunteer with the Bayard Taylor Library Adult Literacy Program. He pours countless hours into two main passions that have touched and served a myriad of community members in the Kennett Square area. Tovar serves as President of Kacie’s Cause, a not-for-profit organization that he co-created with Andy Rumford 10 years ago. Kacie’s Cause is instrumental in building awareness about the organization, and, offering support to families as they navigate through substance abuse. Through this important work, friends and family of addicted loved ones come together to reduce isolation and offer hope.
Mr. Tovar is a passionate voice for the Hispanic community of Kennett Square and has completed six years as Chairman for the Borough’s Advisory Commission on Latino Affairs (ACOLA). He works tirelessly to ensure affordable and equitable housing, accessible transportation and awareness of the value and cultural depth that the Hispanic community brings to our diverse community. This past year Tovar’s hard work and many connections brought together an amazing group of Hispanic contributors to the Kennett Memorial Day Parade:
Aztec Dancers, Mariachi, Caballeros, traditional folkloric dancers, and memorials of Hispanic Soldiers were carried by students from Kennett High School. When he is not devoting himself to community service work or spending time with his family, he can be found in the Kennett Square office of Berkshire Hathaway where he is an active real estate broker.
