Rancho Cordovan of the Year
Conrade Mayer
Remember the old Beach Boys tune, "Be True to Your School?" It starts out like this: "When some braggart tries to put me down; And says his school is great; I tell him right away; Now what's the matter buddy; Ain't you heard of my school?; It's number one in the state." That sounds like a conversation you might have with the Rancho Cordovan of the Year, Conrade Mayer.

We Could Not Do it Without You
The Harmer Family
Today, families are finding new ways to spend time together and volunteering is one way to do just that. Did you know that research shows that volunteering as a family helps families identify their place in the world? It is a way to pass along family values and provide new experiences for the both kids and adults. It helps families learn how to solve problems together and helps younger members decide what they want to do with their life. Then, there's the Harmer Family. They are just plain crazy.

Hometown Hero
Jerry Cisco and Sam McDonald
It's not every day you get to meet a real hometown hero, but today's your lucky day. Today you get to meet two. Sam McDonald and Jerry Cisco are rare breeds in more ways than one. For starters, they are both third generation Rancho Cordovans. Their grandparents lived here, their parents grew up here, and now they are both married and have started their own lives here.

All American Fourth of July Volunteer
Karen Teague
Rancho Cordova's largest annual celebration is the Fourth of July when volunteers absolutely transform Hagan Park into our own patriotic wonderland. Those who actually work on this project don't think of it as a party as much as a major miracle.

Distinguished Teen Service
Mark Sohl
Every now and then a person appears on the scene that has that special something that makes others sit up and take notice. This special person often emerges as the leader of the group. When this person is still in high school, you can't help but wonder what the future holds. We think that's true of Mark Sohl, a Cordova High School senior, who has emerged as a leader among the leaders over at the Home of the Lancers.

Distinguished Service Organization
Metro CERT
What can you say about an organization that spends hours and hours preparing for an event they hope will never happen? That would have to describe the Metro CERT, Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District's Community Emergency Response Team.

Distinguished Service to Youth
Rancho Cordova Police Activities League (PAL)
No organization has had more impact on more children in our community in the past few years than the Police Activities League – PAL. Inspired by individuals in the community, powered by adult volunteers and fostered by the Rancho Cordova Police Department, PAL has touched the lives of thousands of kids at a time when schools and park district programs have been diminished or closed.

Distinguished Community Service
Scottie Moore
Who says one woman cannot make a difference? This woman has been a tireless volunteer advocate performing a valuable service in controlling a problem most of us would rather not be bothered with: control of feral cat populations in our public parks and in our city. While many would be horrified to think that our taxpayer dollars are used to kill thousands of animals each year, most of you would never bother to do anything about it. That's what makes Scottie Moore different.

Distinguished Business Partner
John Slama, Slama Electric
Somebody once said that "good companies make money. Great companies make a difference in their community." In these tough economic times, it may be said that good companies are those who simply manage to hang on. True enough. We need to be mindful that a business that provides a good service and provides its employees a good living are something to be appreciated. Still, there are those that do all that, and then some. And that would include Slama Electric of Rancho Cordova.
