Certificates of Appreciation

At the November 7 council meeting, Certificates of Appreciation were given to Dennis Donaghu and Sherry Sterrett in recognition of their service on the Pleasant Hill Recreation and Park District Board of Directors. Donaghu has served on the board for 10 years, from 2006 to 2016, and Sterrett has served for an impressive 20 years, from 1996 to 2016.

“I’d like to think I’ve done a little bit to help make Pleasant Hill more pleasant, and I’ve certainly enjoyed every minute of it. And I’m still going to make hot chocolate at Light Up the Night!” Donaghu said.

Beyond her service with the Rec and Park board of directors, Sterrett was a Mt. Diablo Unified School District board member from 1980-1986, a Pleasant Hill city councilmember from 1987-1995, Pleasant Hill mayor in 1991-1992, and a member of the Pleasant Hill Library Task Force.

Councilmember Harris added, “I have had the pleasure to work with both of those wonderful folks, and they are truly assets to this community and they both embody what is so great about Pleasant Hill: people who work hard and are dedicated to what is in the best interest of the folks that they represent.”

Jennifer Ortega and Andrew Pierce have been appointed to the five-member board, replacing Sterrett and Donaghu. Ortega said about the Rec and Park and her new position, “I am so impressed by the wonderful facilities and programs that Rec and Park provides for our greater community. I'm eager to work with the board to create the kinds of spaces and programs that will enrich the lives of local youth, families, seniors and all of our neighbors.”
