Nominations Open for Community Hero Award

The Corona-Norco Branch of Assistance League® of Riverside is seeking nominations for its annual Community Hero Award.  This award recognizes an individual who has gone “above and beyond expectations” to help children and youth in the area covered by the Corona-Norco Unified School District.

Last year’s award – the first to be presented — was given to Heather Regus, a teacher at Dr. Bernice Jameson Todd Elementary School in the Temescal Valley.  Mrs. Regus was recognized for the hours and effort she spent, in addition to her normal teaching duties, working with students and helping volunteers in the branch’s SOAR (Students Overjoyed About Reading) program.

Branch members now are reaching out to community leaders and local organizations seeking nominations for the award, which will be presented during the Wine & Roses fundraising dinner on Thursday, May 16, the Pacific Crest Lodge at Trilogy of Glen Ivy.

A copy of the nomination form can be found here.

The deadline for nominations is March 15.

Additional information and nomination forms may be obtained by contacting Linda McIntosh, branch chairman, at
