Rick Pinnell - 2017 recipient of the Ted Robertson Community Service Award

(Yakima, WA) The Ted Robertson Community Service Award was established in 1989 by the Greater Yakima Chamber of Commerce Past Presidents/Board Chairs to honor individuals each year that have made major contributions to the betterment of the Greater Yakima area.  Ted Robertson, former publisher of the Yakima-Herald Republic, held a strong belief that good fortune earned in a community should be shared with that community.  Ted also believed that we, as a community, ought to find more ways to honor people who distinguish themselves through their community service over and above their chosen profession.  
The honorees are selected by the Past Board Presidents/Chairs of the Chamber for their inspiring leadership, achievements and commitment to the improvement of our community as business people and citizens of the Yakima Valley.
The prestigious Ted Robertson Community Service Award has become the  Yakima Valley’s highest recognition for civic accomplishment and involvement.
The Past Chairs of The Greater Yakima Chamber of Commerce are proud to announce Rick Pinnell as the 2017 recipient of the Ted Robertson Community Service Award.
