Thousand Oaks Rotary Honors 22 CVUSD Students for Excellence in Citizenship

On Thursday, May 25th the Thousand Oaks Rotary hosted the 37th Annual Youth Citizenship Awards to honor one student from every CVUSD elementary and middle school for their demonstration of integrity, goodwill and service to others.
