Kim Nesbitt Good of Elizabeth Receives the Chester Holmes Humanitarian Award

Union County Freeholder Chairman Sergio Granados and Freeholders Linda Carter, Alexander Mirabella, Angela R. Garretson and Angel G. Estrada present the Chester Holmes Humanitarian Award to lifelong Elizabeth resident Kim Nesbitt Good during the Union County 2018 Black History Month Celebration at the UCPAC in Rahway. They were joined by members of the Holmes and Nesbitt Good families.

Kim Nesbitt Good is the proprietor of the Nesbitt Funeral Home in Elizabeth with her husband of 39 years, Ted. Her insistence on the highest standards in her profession is matched by her efforts on behalf of the African American community in and around Union County. She has been honored by scores of local, state, federal and national organizations, highlighted by receiving the Presidential Pin from President Barack Obama in recognition of her extraordinary service to others.

The Freeholder Board created the award in honor of the late former Freeholder Chester Holmes.
