Betty Nesbit, 84, of Glenshaw will receive a Mooseheart Community Spirit Award for her work with young people in the community and raising money for college scholarships through the Glenshaw Century Club.

Noteworthy: The North Hills Moose Lodge will honor Nesbit on Thursday with a Mooseheart Community Spirit Award for her work with young people and in raising money for college scholarships through the Glenshaw Century Club. Allegheny County Council recognized Nesbit and nine other Mooseheart winners at a meeting this month.

Age: 84

Residence: Glenshaw

Family: Son, Dan Littell, and daughter, Diane Brown. Her husband, Howard Nesbit, died six years ago.

Occupation: Nesbit ran Cheswick Pools and Patios for 40 years before selling it in 2003.

Background: Nesbit travels extensively, with future trips planned for Virginia, Florida and Israel. She is an avid reader, gardener and bridge player.

Education: Nesbit graduated from Shaler High School in 1947. About 40 members still meet for regular reunions.

Quote: “Our youth are the future of the community. When we have the interviews for the scholarships, one of the questions we ask is where do you see yourself in 10 years, and if they say they’re out of here, we don’t really consider them for a scholarship. We want them to stay here.”

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
