Diana Cusumano has dedicated her time to service the Santa Clarita Valley and other organizations that are close to her and is truly an unsung hero. Cusumano has been volunteering in the Valley for over three decades and plans to keep on going as long as she can. Being a part of the education system for years, Cusumano was the Site Council President, PTA board member, a three-year volunteer reading specialist and ESL tutor, and created the first Math Triathlon fundraiser at Wiley Canyon Elementary School.

Staying close to education, Cusumano has been a College of the Canyons Foundation board member and in 2011 for her efforts in the community and with her work with COC was given the Silver Spur Community Service Award.

"Diana is not only a tireless, dedicated volunteer, but also she is a leader who inspires others to give of themselves," said College of the Canyons Chancellor Dr. Dianne Van Hook. "Her legacy of selfless service to the Santa Clarita Valley is amazing, and we so appreciate the opportunity we have to recognize and thank her for all that she has done to touch so many lives for so many years."

Santa Clarita's Unsung Hero - Jami Kennedy

 

Jami Kennedy has lived in the Santa Clarita Valley since 1956 and has seen the progression of the Valley first hand. Now, a full-time volunteer in the Santa Clarita Valley and Southern California, Kennedy first started volunteering in the ‘80s with the Santa Clarita Valley Boys & Girls Club organization. She has been a contributor of their annual auction ever since. A longtime member of the Zonta Club of the Santa Clarita Valley, Kennedy has made headway through each office and currently sits as the Sunshine Chair.

“As a Sunshine Chair, I have ramped it up from the past and we have a couple of our members in hospice care and in a nursing home,” Kennedy said. “I go there and take care of their belongings and have seen a couple of our members through death.”

American Red Cross, the SCV Senior Center’s Celebrity Waiter Dinner, and Gentle Barn are a few of the many organizations that Kennedy has and continues to work with. On top of volunteering, Kennedy sits on the board of the Gibbon Conservation Center in Santa Clarita and Carousel Ranch Therapy while also being involved with the Circle of Hope and their annual silent auction.

Santa Clarita's Unsung Hero - Myrna Condie

 

 

Myrna Condie has called Santa Clarita her home for the past 38 years and when it comes to volunteering, she immerses herself in community activities. Through her dedication and hard work, Myrna was honored with the title of Santa Clarita’s Woman of the Year. With new ideas and implementations, Condie was the founder of annual SCV Festival of Trees.

 

“My mother was in hospital over in Saint George, Utah and I happen to be there helping her as she was there. I have seen a lot of people talking about the festival trees and they kept saying different things about how excited they were for the coming festival of trees,” said Condie. “As I investigated into it more, it looked like something that we should have here in our valley. So I brought up the subject and a few friends supported me and we have the whole community coming in.”

 

Not only was Condie the founder of SCV Festival of Trees, but she was also the Co-Founder of the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clarita Valley Foundation. She was also on the Chair of COC’s "Circle of Friends'' Committee  and a Member of COC Foundation Board of Directors.
