Speedway Children's Charities Welcomes New Trustee
The Sonoma Chapter of Speedway Children's Charities (SCC) recently welcomed Rebecca Hermosillo as the newest member of its Board of Trustees.
Hermosillo, a Sonoma Valley native, is the District Representative for United States Congressman Mike Thompson. Hermosillo has worked for the Congressman for more than seven years, working to connect with constituents and help mitigate federal issues through casework. She is deeply committed to her local community and is grateful for opportunities that allow her to continue service work.
Prior to working for the Congressman, she was the Executive Director of Valley of the Moon Teen Center. Hermosillo has been a longtime advocate and supporter of youth, helping them excel as they transition into adulthood. Rebecca also serves on Pepperwood Preserves Youth Advisory Council, as well as the Sonoma County Sheriff's Latino Advisory Council.
"Rebecca has such a broad base of knowledge about our community and has been so involved in supporting positive youth initiatives over the years, she will be a wonderful addition to our board and we are excited to have her join us," said Steve Page, Sonoma Raceway president and general manager.
Hermosillo was the first person in her family to receive a four-year degree with a Bachelor of Arts in Public Administration from Park University. She is the youngest of seven siblings and a mom to two young men who live in Napa and Solano County.
Hermosillo joins the existing 16-member Board of Trustees for the Sonoma chapter of SCC, the charitable arm of Sonoma Raceway, which has distributed $6.8 million to Sonoma County youth groups since 2001. The board meets annually to distribute grants to Sonoma County youth groups and supports the charity by volunteering at events throughout the year.
"I'm excited to join Speedway Children's Charities and look forward to working with the Board of Trustees to make a positive impact on the lives of Sonoma County youth," said Hermosillo.
