Foundation Directors Win Awards
Lodi Memorial Hospital Foundation directors Sherry Cota and Dr. Ken Mullen recently received awards from the Lodi Chamber of Commerce at the annual awards dinner held January 21st at Wine and Roses.
Dr. Mullen was selected as Citizen of the Year for his extensive volunteerism to Lodi and his past service as a Lodi Unified School District board member, countless civic taskforce committees, team doctor for Lodi High School sports and nearly 40 years of medical practice in Lodi. Dr. Mullen represents the best example of true philanthropy in our community. He continues to serve guiding the Palliative Care program at Lodi Health and as a current board member of the Foundation.
Sherry Cotta and her husband Joe were selected as Agribusiness of the Year not only for their agricultural products and board service on the Winegrape commission and Chamber but also for their volunteer work through Rotary International and Lodi Memorial Hospital Foundation. The Cottas have been great supporters of the Foundation and serve at every event. Sherry is also the co-chair of the Public Relations Committee overseeing Foundation events.
“We are honored and fortunate to have such committed and impactful leaders on our Foundation Board and we have developed a bit of a tradition with Randy Snider, immediate past president of the Foundation, also winning Citizen of the Year in 2014”, stated Wayne Craig, Executive Director.
