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.
