CSU CI President Honored as ‘Spirit of Community’

United Way of Ventura County will award CSU Channel Islands President Richard R. Rush its Lifetime Achievement Award at the organization's annual awards luncheon. 


President Rush will be honored at the 11th Annual United Way of Ventura County "Spirit of Community Partnership Awards Luncheon" to be held Sept. 17, 2015.

"Dr. Rush is an extraordinary leader who led the effort to create a world-class public university," said Eric Harrison, president and CEO of United Way. "His vision to unite public and private partnerships is the very core of what we at United Way believe transforms communities. Ventura County is a better place because of his service and we are forever grateful for his remarkable legacy."

President Rush — who recently announced that he intends to retire at the end of the academic year — said he is honored to be recognized by an organization that does so much good.

"United Way has always been close to my heart, having volunteered for the United Way in Ventura County, San Diego and Minnesota," Rush said. "This gesture is particularly meaningful to me, and I am honored to receive it."  

United Way of Ventura County will also present six other awards in recognition of other individuals, corporations, volunteers and organizations that provide their time, funds and talent to the community.

Registration and networking will begin at 11 a.m., followed by the luncheon and awards from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
