Ed “Eddie" Kirkpatrick Award
The first City of Glendora sponsored perpetual volunteerism award was named after Edgar “Ed” Kirkpatrick.  Ed was an outstanding Glendora youth, young adult sports figure, and citizen.  Ed signed with the California Angels as a catcher in 1962 just after graduation from high school.  Today, the Ed “Eddie” Kirkpatrick Award continues to be awarded to an outstanding adult who has provided exemplary and extraordinary service to the youth of Glendora in the area of sports.
William E. “Buck” Dunham
Glendora is acknowledged as one of the most volunteer oriented communities in the San Gabriel Valley.  As such, the originating Commission recognized that adults volunteer in numerous youth oriented activities.  In order to acknowledge these volunteers, a second award was created.  This award was named in honor of William E. “Buck“ Dunham and is awarded to an individual who has made outstanding contributions to the youth of Glendora in an area other than sports. 
Ruth Harper Award
Glendora also honors individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the community's senior population.  This award is named in honor of Ruth Harper.  Ruth was a tireless worker and volunteer for the seniors of Glendora. Her tenacity on behalf of senior services was instrumental in laying the foundation for the programs and services that Glendora seniors enjoy today.
