The recipients were honored at a Kentucky Derby-themed celebration held Feb. 25 at the Morgan Hill Community and Cultural Center. The Morgan Hill Chamber of Commerce holds the annual celebration every February to honor those who contribute positively to the community and uphold the standards of excellence in their work and volunteerism. They are nominated by members of the public and selected by a group of past honorees.
