Nominations open for Gavilan College Spirit Awards

Courtesy of Gavilan College:

Nominations are open now through Thursday, August 31 for the 2018 Gavilan College Community Spirit Awards. Anyone who lives or works in the Gavilan Joint Community College District may nominate a business, individual, or organization for all they do that contributes to the quality of life in our communities.
Each year, three sets of awards are presented, for the communities of Morgan Hill, Gilroy, and San Benito County. In each community an individual, a business, and a non-profit organization are selected for their history of service, their impact on the community, and the inspiration they provide to others.

The 2018 Committee members are:

  • Jan Bernstein Chargin
  • Stacey Porteur
  • Judy Rodriguez
  • Mary Ann Sanidad
  • Linda Bernabe
  • Bobbi Jo Palmer (Gavilan College Education Foundation)

Anyone may submit a nomination for a community spirit award.

Candidates must reside, work, or do business in the community for which they are being nominated.

A committee representing Gavilan College staff, students, and faculty will review the nominations and make a recommendation to the Board of Trustees for one business, one organization, and one individual from each of the major communities in the college district.

Nominations will be evaluated based upon:

  • Duration of service to the community
  • Impact of the nominee on the community
  • Scope of the impact (were a few people affected?, many?, a specific subset?)
  • Is the nominee a volunteer?
  • Intangible evidence of “Community Spirit.”  — tell us what that means to you

Nomination forms, more information, and a listing of past award recipients are available online at http://www.gavilan.edu/news/announcement/spirit-awards.php
