Parent of the Year Recipients 

2016-17 Regina Crawford

Regina was nominated by her daughter Ka'sha who graduated in the spring of 2017 with a degree in African American Studies. Ka'sha is inspired by her mother for her determination to finish her bachelor's degree in Psychology and Business while raising a family, working full-time, and giving back to the community through her work with the Ventura County Chapter of the NAACP. The committee was inspired by her as well, and named her the 2016-17 Parent of the Year on May 20, 2017. Congratulations Regina!
