Nevada’s top senior citizen sought

The search for Nevada’s Senior Citizen of the Year begins on Feb. 1.

The National Silver Haired Congress Nevada Delegation, in partnership with the Aging Services Directors Organization (ASDO), established the award in 2013.

Raymonde Fiol, a 77-year-old Las Vegas resident, was honored by Gov. Sandoval and the Congressional delegation as the 2014 Nevada Senior Citizen of the Year. Nominators described Fiol’s efforts as follows: “Mrs. Raymonde Fiol is on a mission for what we call in Hebrew “Tikkun Olam” – “repairing the world.” Mrs. Raymonde Fiol has made it her life mission to preserve the memory of the Holocaust and to make sure Holocaust survivors in our community and around the United States are provided with the services they need.”

The competition is open to all people 60 and older and have lived in Nevada for five years. The nomination guidelines and forms are available at or by calling 702-860-6349.

The deadline for nominations is March 31. The award will be presented in May.
