The JCSD Parks & Recreation Department genuinely values our community partners and understands their roles in helping us best serve the community and vice-versa. To ensure our many community partners understand their importance to us and to publicly recognize the outstanding efforts of those partners that go above and beyond, we created the “JCSD Community Leader Award” in July 2022. Award recipients are selected on a quarterly basis by JCSD Parks & Recreation Department staff and honored at JCSD Board meetings.
July 2022 – George Rife
On July 25, 2002, the JCSD Board of Directors honored George Rife as the first JCSD Community Leader Award recipient! George is currently the President of the Eastvale Kiwanis Club and is always willing to support and coordinate volunteers for many of our special events and programs. As a trusted friend of JCSD, he’s also been instrumental in connecting us with other community partners, such as the Roosevelt High School Key Club, Chinese American Volunteer Association, and the Rondo School of Discovery Photo Club, to name a few. We thank George for his commitment to working with JCSD and improving the great communities we serve.
October 2022 – Vantage Point Church
On October 10, 2022, the JCSD Board of Directors honored Vantage Point Church as the second JCSD Community Leader Award recipient. Over the last several months, Vantage Point Church has volunteered over 1,400 hours for JCSD, including helping with our Easter event, annual camp out, and monthly food distribution. They’re always willing to help us and we’re blessed to have them as a community partner.
