“Rocklin is a growing, thriving city that retains a sense of community and small-town values,” said Warren Jorgenson, the Acting Chair of the Community Recognition Commission, which leads efforts on the Ruhkala Awards and the Wall of Recognition. “These awards spotlight the people providing valuable volunteerism and we hope will inspire other residents to get involved in their communities.”

Past Ruhkala Award winners have included community pillars such as: Larry Osborne, who created the annual Run Rocklin event benefiting the Matt Redding Foundation; the Rocklin Chamber of Commerce for their ongoing work in support of Rocklin businesses and the economy; and Marie A.
