2019 Grace Award presented to Simranjeet “Simran” Cheema

Simranjeet “Simran” CheemaThis year’s recipient is Simranjeet “Simran” Cheema, a student at the University of California, Davis.

The Grace Award is named both for the first recipient, Grace Hiddleson, and for the virtues exemplified by The Three Graces of western mythology that inspired qualities such as Excellence, Service to Another, Charity, Mercy, Love, Gentleness, and Friendship. Each year the award is given to a volunteer who has excelled in compassionate service to the elderly and their caregivers.

As a volunteer for both the Citizens Who Care and Yolo Hospice programs, Cheema exemplifies dedication to those she serves. Over the years her work with CWC with older dependent adults and their caregivers has been a testimony to her kindness and desire to serve others. And her compassionate work with Yolo Hospice patients and families, and as a greeter for the grieving, has improved the quality of life of all those our organization serves.
