“Bill Primmerman is a long-time, tireless advocate for all of Mid-Maine. He goes above and beyond in all of the work he does, with deep and abiding conviction, which clearly inspires the people around him,” said Alan Duplessis from the United Way.
Bill is the heart of Somerset Public Health, and has built a dedicated team of committed professionals around him. He has always selflessly gone above the call for anyone...any business...any organization...or any community.
Bill’s response to being informed that he would be receiving this acknowledgement was not unexpected – he turned the focus on others: “I am humbled to receive your Spirit of Mid-Maine Award and will do so in honor of all those United in Somerset County who daily serve their fellow citizens.”
