Hello Friends,   


We are happy to announce that CRC RAC member, Darryl Rutherford, has been selected to receive the 2011 Ted K. Bradshaw Memorial Alumnus Award in the Community Development Graduate Program at UC Davis.  You'll find his detailed bio on our site here . In addition to the various professional contributions outlined in his bio, Darryl's contributions to the CRC's RAC have provided valuable overall guidance to the CRC. In this role, he's also directly expanded opportunities for collaboration with UC Davis community development students in their research and internship opportunities with the CRC and the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco.

Darryl's contributions will be honored in person at the Community Development Graduate Student Symposium, which highlights the great work of our current cohort of graduating students.  The event is free and open to the public, and we hope you will join us there.
