Rancho Cordovan of the Year

Everybody knows the famous Wizard of Oz scene where Dorothy performs Glinda the Good Witch's simple magic spell.

Special Recognition
Clayton Berriesford
Imagine walking down the Yellow Brick Road.

It's lined with beautiful poppies, right?

Now, imagine walking down the Yellow Brick Road and there's a bunch of trash everywhere you look. It's quite a different picture.

Distinguished Teen Service
Logan Shelton
Volunteering on behalf of our youth is highly prized in Rancho Cordova. But what about those outstanding teens who are giving of their time and talent to others?

It is always a pleasure to shine a light on the wonderful things young people are doing in our community. Despite what you might think, teens in our town care about each other and their community and want to help.

They were armed with paint brushes and rakes. And big hearts.

Distinguished Service to Youth
Sheryl Longsworth
One thing we believe in around here is that kids matter.

They need opportunities to learn, grow and lead. They need chances to volunteer, to engage in the arts, play sports and explore future careers - to experience the world and learn the skills needed to be 21st century citizens.

Distinguished Community Service
Karen Callen-Anderson
One of our favorite Wizard of Oz characters has to be the Tin Man. It is from him we learn a lot about heart.

We have also learned a lot about heart from Karen Callen-Anderson, who has certainly shown more than her share. She has miles of it.

Distinguished Business Partner
Kevin and Jane Tate, California Carnival Company
A carnival is one of those events that evoke memories of childhood. This fabulous fun brings out the child in all of us.

If you grew up in a small town, you surely remember when the carnival came to town. It was an excuse to break open the piggy bank so you could take a thrilling ride, each sticky cotton candy and maybe even win a giant stuffed bear.
