For 34 years, the Distinguished Citizen Award event has been one of the Council's premiere events.  The award is an annual recognition of those who give freely of their time and talents to improve the quality of life in Kent County.  Honorees are selected based on how the community has benefited from the individual's contributions and the lasting effects those contributions have left on the community.

In January 2017, Michael T. Scuse was reappointed by Governor John C. Carney as Delaware Secretary of Agriculture.  Scuse previously served with the U.S. Department of Agriculture as Acting U.S. Secretary of Agriculture, Acting Deputy Secretary of Agriculture and Under Secretary for Farm and Foreign  Agricultural Services.  As Under Secretary, he oversaw USDA's Farm Service Agency, Risk Management Agency, and Foreign Agricultural Services.  He served as Delaware Secretary of Agriculture from 2001-2008, and also served as Chief of Staff to former Gov. Ruth Ann Minner.  He has received the Medal of Achievement from the Delmarva Poultry Industry, Inc. in 2006, the Secretary's Award for Distinguished Service to Delaware Agriculture in 20012, and the Ambassador Circle Award by the National Association of State Departments of Agriculture (NASDA) in 2016.  Secretary Scuse and his wife, Patrice, live in Smyrna on a corn, soybean and wheat farm.
