Two Mahoning Valley seniors will be inducted in the Ohio Senior Citizens Hall of Fame on a live stream Wednesday afternoon.

Dr. Rashid Abdu of Canfield (pictured left above) is recognized for decades of performing surgery and teaching new generations of physicians, saving the lives of countless Mahoning Valley patients in the process.

After age 70, Dr. Abdu volunteered as a physician and surgeon with Mission of Love to the Mayans in Yucatan, Mexico, to an orphanage clinic in Guatemala, the Indian Reservation in Pine Ridge, South Dakota and in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.

In 1994, Dr. Abdu lost his wife to breast cancer. Since then, with the help of Mercy Health and the community, the Joanie Abdu Comprehensive Breast Cancer Center opened in 2011.

Jim Kerr of Lisbon (pictured right above) is recognized for his work over four decades as a biology teacher with services dedicated to Beaver Local School District, Columbiana County Educational Service Center and Ohio Valley College of Technology.

Additionally, Kerr used the taxidermy mounts and skins he acquired for his classroom to found the Beaver Creek Wildlife Education Center. He's also worked with local legislators and state officials to secure funding for additions to the Wildlife Education Center building.

The Ohio Senior Citizens Hall of Fame was established in 1977 to honor Ohioans aged 60 years old and over for their achievements and their contributions to their communities.
