Centurion Award honorees serve as exemplars of leadership, modeling to others a commitment to public service for the greater good.
“The National City Chamber takes great pride in recognizing our community’s hard working professionals; They contribute to our sense of safety, enlightenment, and community resiliency,” shares Jacqueline Reynoso, President and CEO of the 500-member business association. This year’s award recipients include St. Florian of the Year, captain Scott Robinson from the National City Fire Department; Officer Salvador Gil from the National City Police Department; Dr. Nicole Kranzberg from Sweetwater High School; Norma Victorio, Teacher from Rancho De La Nacion Elementary School; Dr. David Kretchmar, Professor at Southwestern College; Nurse of the Year, Cris Escarrilla from San Ysidro Health.
Our 2020 honorees will each receive special certificates of recognition from the office of Congressman Juan Vargas, State Senator Benjamin Hueso, Assembly Member Shirley Weber, Assembly Member Lorena Gonzalez - Fletcher, Supervisor Greg Cox, District Attorney Stephan, and National City’s Mayor and Council.
