This Friday, Jan. 25, I—Claudia Cruz—will be among several people and organizations recognized by the Chamber of Commerce Mountain View at their annual Celebration of Leaders dinner for our "professional and personal achievements, outstanding work and dedication to our community."
I'm still humbly surprised.
I arrived in Mountain View on June 28, 2010 to prepare for the launch of Mountain View Patch. Almost three years later, I'm being honored by some members of the community for my hardwork. Thank you.
It feels pretty good, especially since I'm in the company of other outstanding individuals and businesses like Christine Tran, owner of Artisan Wine Depot; Matthew Butler, branch manager of Xceed Financial Credit Union; Hacker Dojo; the MVLA High School Foundation; Statcomm Inc., and Intuit. Together we'll be awarded at the Oshman Family Jewish Community Center in Palo Alto at 6 p.m.
"Mountain View continues to grow and attract incredible companies and individuals who do amazing work and contribute to the vitality of our city," said Oscar Garcia, president of the Chamber.
The criteria used in the selection process included the success of the business being nominated, their level of participation in our community and their Chamber involvement.
These participating non-profits will be in attendance to honor their volunteers of the year: CHAC, Community Services Agency, KMVT15, Leadership Mountain View, Day Worker Center of Mountain View, Friends of Stevens Creek Trail and El Camino YMCA.
Hope you come celebrate with us!
