Spokane Valley resident Sally Jackson was presented a Key to the City as part of Spokane Valley's 10-year anniversary Community Recognition Program.
Mayor Tom Towey made the presentation during last week’s City Council meeting.
Towey introduced this month's recipient, and said, "I am proud and honored tonight to recognize Sally Jackson for her work with the youth in our community."
Jackson, who has been a resident of Spokane Valley for more than 50 years, was nominated for the honor because of her contributions to and positive impacts upon local youth.
"Many of our lives have been affected by what she has done," noted Councilmember Chuck Hafner, describing her as "the guiding force" in founding the local girls' softball league more than forty years ago. In addition to coaching baseball and softball with her husband, Ron, Jackson also teaches children to swim, motivated by a desire to prevent drowning.
The city of Spokane Valley encourages community members to nominate for recognition those individuals/organizations/businesses whose efforts have contributed positively to the Spokane Valley community.
