Santee's Ken Fox Wins Statewide Award

Tuesday, May 31, 2011

Ken Fox is the prototype of the active citizen and long-term volunteer that communities everywhere rely upon to improve their quality of life.

He’s been a leader and supporter of youth sports programs in Santee and the East County region for more than 30 years.

He’s also been the wagonmaster of a hot dog stand that raises money for a program that pays the fees so that needy families and seniors can participate in Santee’s recreation programs.

He was the driving force behind the creation of last year’s Santee Wine & Bluegrass Festival, which raised about $8,700 for the city’s recreation scholarship program and other park improvement projects.

He’s served on the Santee Park and Recreation Committee since April 1999 and is currently its chairman. He’s also an elected board member of the Santee School District.

In consideration of these accomplishments, the California Association of Park and Recreation Commissioners awarded its Outstanding Park and Recreation Commissioner of 2010 to Ken Fox. He was presented with the statewide award at the May 25 Santee City Council meeting.
