The Stocktonian of the Year honors those individuals who embody the spirit of volunteerism and who have conscientiously served and positively impacted the community. The award recognizes those who are making a difference in our City and who do not typically seek or receive recognition for their efforts. Recognizing that individual for their acts of goodness, extensive community involvement and continual devotion to the betterment of Stockton.
