  • The 2016 Outstanding Student Citizen of the Year Awards turned out to be one of the best to date! We honored 28 local schools and students with the above and beyond efforts of our local businesses who partnered with us to sponsor the event! The event took place at Redwood Canyon Golf Course and Event Center on Thursday May 26th from 12:00pm-2:00pm. Each student honored at the event was hosted by a Chamber of Commerce sponsor, each business person who sponsored a student considered it an honor to act as a host and to participate in the selection process of the Student Citizen of the Year. Our Master of Ceremonies Frank Mellon, Director of East Bay Mud spoke from the heart when he said "There are very few truisms in life - but one is that good people often go unnoticed.This is particularly true of young people - after all they are just getting started out and who knows them? That's what makes today so special - these fine young people that we are going to recognize have been noticed." His passion really helped make everyone in the room feel very special to be apart of the day! As part of the program each student received certificates of recognition from Congressman Swalwell, Assemblymember Bill Quirk, Alameda County Supervisor Nate Miley, Alameda County Supervisor Wilma Chan, West Property's Tricia West as well as gift bags from Eden Medical Center.


    On behalf of the Chamber we thank the community for another great event and we can't wait for next years!
