Thrasher Named Wellville's Man of the Year

Wellsville businessman Greg Thrasher was honored as the Chamber’s Man of the Year at their annual Citizens of the Year Dinner.  The dinner was held at the WHS Alumni Center this past Thursday evening.  Thrasher is the owner of Jim’s Wrecker Service and is the son of the late Phyllis & Jim Thrasher.  He is also the husband of Karen Thrasher.  Last year's Man of the Year Jim Saracco announced the Chamber members selection.

Thrasher is a Wellsville native and Wellsville High School alumni of the Class of 1968.  He is a Navy veteran having served his country during the Viet Nam era.  Greg first began working for his father while still in high school and, except for his time in the Navy, has been there ever since.  He is a member of several organizations in the Wellsville community and currently serves as the Fiscal Officer & Secretary of American Legion Post 70. 

Although named Man of the Year, Greg Thrasher would have been eligible for the duel of honor for both the Community Service Award and Man of the Year.  Lending a helping hand to his Wellsville neighbors is in his DNA with him following in the footsteps of both his mother & father.   When not on the road for business Greg is often spotted around the village lifting boat docks in and out of the water, loaning his tractor trailer for parade floats, donating his time for Historical Society projects and countless other things.  Many of those things go unrecognized as he goes quietly along.  It’s a family tradition.

Congratulations Greg…
