LAPLACE – St. John the Baptist Parish President Natalie Robottom was recently honored as Citizen of the Year by the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Phi Iota Iota Chapter.   
According to the organization, Robottom was selected for this award because of her unusual contributions to humanity as a person of local/regional/national recognition, acclaimed by a significant segment of society for outstanding contributions to the welfare of mankind. Robottom has worked closely with the Omegas during fraternity-sponsored events of both a civic and community nature.
“It is indeed a great honor to accept the Omega Psi Phi Citizen of the Year award in the midst of our recovery efforts. Although my path to success was paved with great educational opportunities, it would not have been possible without those who came before me. Partnering with organizations like the Omegas contributes to the well-being of our community, and it provides opportunities for future generations.”
