Each year, Senator Morrell holds a special awards ceremony, dinner, and policy forum to honor veterans, reservists, enlisted service members, and businesses or organizations that support them. We are requesting your assistance in nominating individuals in the 23rd Senate District for this recognition. A selection committee will choose three finalists each as “Patriots of the Past” and “Patriots of the Present” in each of the following categories: Business, Education, Health Care, Public Safety, Civic Service, and Community Service. One finalist from each category will be selected for a special recognition at the event.
Honorees must live in, work in, or be involved with organizations that serve the 23rd Senate District, which includes the communities of: Rancho Cucamonga, Loma Linda, Redlands, San Bernardino, Highland, Banning, Beaumont, Calimesa, Yucaipa, Hemet, Mentone, Menifee, Sun City, Homeland, Nuevo, San Jacinto, Phelan, Piñon Hills, Wrightwood and the mountain communities including the areas of Big Bear Valley, Running Springs, Lake Arrowhead, Crestline, Blue Jay and Twin Peaks.
