The Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clarita Valley’s annual Holiday Board Awards Luncheon took place on December 10 at the James T. Ventress Clubhouse in Newhall.
Board Awards honorees were selected by the nonprofit organization’s executive committee and CEO.
This year’s recipients are:
Tom Veloz Board Member of the Year: Lee Watters
This award is named after 1988’s SCV Man of the Year and former Board Member Tom Veloz, whose time on the board was exemplified by his commitment and dedication to the club and youth of Santa Clarita. Each year it is awarded to a board member who shows the same level of commitment and dedication as Mr. Veloz.
Sam Dixon Legacy Award: Santa Clarita Concrete
This award was established in 1974 in honor of Reverend Samuel Dixon, a founding board member of what was then the Boys Club of Newhall-Saugus. This annual accolade is presented to a local business or individual who has contributed significant time and effort to the Club. Wayne Crawford accepted on behalf of his company.
Employee of the Year: Cecil Hammock
This marks the second year we are presenting this award. Recipients are chosen based on their commitment and dedication to the club. Cecil enjoys the title of Athletic Coordinator for the clubhouse in Newhall. He has worked for the club for 10 years.
Tony Newhall Volunteer of the Year Award: Dave Reeves
Established in 1983 to recognize an outstanding individual whose time and energy have made a significant impact in club programs and/or fundraising. Dave was out of town so his wife Cindy accepted on his behalf.
Gary Condie Special Recognition Award
This award is given to individuals and businesses whose support of the club in recent years deserves special recognition. As we like to say, “You can never say ‘thank you’ too much.” This award is just a small way for us to say “thank you” to these incredible individuals and businesses.
This year, three outstanding companies were recognized in the Board Awards:
* Mercedes-Benz of Valencia (Chris Paz accepting)
* Steve Kim of Sand Canyon Country Club (Mark Kagaon accepting on Mr. Kim’s behalf)
* Westfield Valencia Town Center (Lewis Bean and Audra Cheney accepting)
