Gina Six Kudo, general manager of Cochrane Road Self Storage in Morgan Hill, Calif., was selected as a recipient of the Gavilan College 2010 Community Spirit Award.
Awarded annually by the Gavilan College Board of Trustees, the Community Spirit Award recognizes individuals, businesses and organizations who contribute in a positive way to the communities that make up the Gavilan Joint Community College District. Community members submit nominations, and final recommendations are made by a committee of Gavilan College staff and faculty. The winners will be recognized at the Morgan Hill Chamber of Commerce breakfast Oct. 7.
Receiving the Community Spirit Award puts us in with some great company based on the past recipients, Kudo says. For our team, the recognition by our community is truly appreciated. No one needs or is seeking a pat on the back. However, the CSA gives us the inspiration to keep up our efforts. We are thankful to the other unsung volunteers who along with us help to make this a great community to live and work in.
Kudo, an ISS contributor and Self-Storage Talk moderator, was also named a 2009 ISS Humanitarian Service Award winner for her contributions to the Morgan Hill community.
