The Community Partnership Awards ceremony is an annual gathering in a sunny banquet room of the Garden Court Hotel in downtown Palo Alto. Civic leaders from Stanford and Palo Alto offer a salute to volunteers whose efforts have had a significant impact on the community.
In introducing the 2011 award winners, Stanford Vice President for Public Affairs David Demarest quoted his former boss in the White House, George H. W. Bush.
"I remember him often saying that any definition of a successful life must include service to others," Demarest said. "The amazing work done by the people in this room that we honor today is at the heart of that statement."
The Miriam Aaron Roland Volunteer Service Prize went to Stanford drama Professor Janice Ross, who created and has taught Dance in Prisons: The Arts, Juvenile Justice and Rehabilitation in America for 10 years. The Haas Center for Public Service selected Ross for the prize.
Three Community Partnership Awards went to Project Safety Net, the Peninsula Family Advocacy Program and the Redwood Environmental Academy of Leadership.
