People to Watch 2018
South County is a wonderful mosaic of first-generation immigrants, East coast transplants, and
California natives. We’re an integral part of mighty Santa Clara County and despite our modest
size, we are richly blessed with people of vision.
TODAY we appreciate the opportunity each year to highlight people in Gilroy, Morgan
Hill and San Martin who contribute to the development and preservation of assets that benefit
the entire community—schools, libraries, sports complexes, senior centers, cultural arts venues, historic
downtowns, wineries, nurseries, farmlands, ranches, places of worship, parks and open space.
If there’s one thing we learn from each other, it’s that community spirit is the tie that binds, keeps us
focused on quality of life for all, and reminds us why we love South County, this place we call home.
