The categories include: Agricultural Leadership, Education for Civic Responsibility, Industrial/Economic Development, Liberty Through Law/Human Freedom, Lyle R. Fletcher Good Citizenship Award, Religion and Liberty, and Self-Government.
The commissioners have been honoring citizens since 1987.
Approximately 340 soldiers of the 148th Infantry Company A in Walbridge and 140 soldiers from Company B in Bowling Green could be included in the mobilization.
Soldiers from both companies have previously served in Iraq.
The Ohio Adjutant General’s office said the Defense Department will likely issue a more detailed mobilization order in about six months.
The event will be held in conference room 101 of Building B. The college is located at 2830 Napoleon Road, Fremont.
The congressman will seek input on policy items from constituents.
