Arroyo Vista Elementary School’s PTA bestowed honorary service awards to individuals or organizations that have demonstrated outstanding service to children and youth in the community during a breakfast Wednesday morning.
Awardees made far-reaching, notable contributions during the school year. The AV PTA selects persons or groups who have benefited children and youth on a district-wide or South Pasadena community level.
Certificates of Appreciation, given to an individual or couple going beyond the call of duty, were presented to Tina Bernardino, Isabelle Ebner, Josefina Leon Johnson, Christine Kim and Danielle Williams and Jennifer Wang.
Honorary Service Awards, presented to an individual or organization in the PTA, school or community in special recognition of outstanding service to children and youth, were handed to Erin Bonz, Kirsten Jones, Karen Kano, Suzanne Smiley and Teressa Wong.
The early morning breakfast was a way for the school’s PTA to publicly acknowledge individuals for outstanding service to children and youth in a community.
At the conclusion of the program, a special musical performance was presented by Tom Thieme’s second grade class.
