The Wendy Davee Award for Service honors our alumna’s memory by recognizing an alumnus/a who exemplifies Wendy’s spirit of community, service, and dedication – soul tending. The award is presented annually, giving the Pacifica community an opportunity to celebrate our colleague, friend, and alumna who gave so much to others. We are pleased to announce that the 2020 Award will include a monetary donation in addition to the exquisite crystal prism.
