Kudos to: Miki Teixeira, photographer
Accomplishment: The driving force behind a fundraising calendar for the Sacramento Police Canine Association
Details: Teixeira has been taking photos of police dogs during training for a couple of years. When she had 12 months’ worth of great police pooch photographs, she had calendars designed and printed at no cost to the department or the canine association. The calendar is available at www.spdk9.org
Kudos to: Supervisor Phil Serna’s band “UnSupervised” and employees from Sacramento County Department of Human Assistance, Health and Human Services
Accomplishment: Raised money for scholarships
Details: Serna’s band performed a benefit gig for DHA’s annual scholarship program. Many young people whom county workers meet do well in high school but have little money for college. Serna pledged to match $14,000 that employees raised. Due to Serna‘s and employees’ efforts, a total of 56 $500 scholarships can be awarded.
