LEADERSHIP MORGAN HILL
LEADERSHIP EXCELLENCE AWARDS
Leadership Morgan Hill (LMH) honored Community Solutions Chief Development Offi-
cer Lisa DeSilva as the 2017 recipient of the prestigious Leadership Excellence Award
at a celebration/fundraiser at Guglielmo Winery in July. The Leadership Excellence
Award recognizes the vision and leadership that advance the spirit of community and
charity; reflects courage and insight; and inspires others to lead in a like manner.
Lisa DeSilva’s labor is spent on her passion – supporting and improving the
lives of the clients of Community Solutions, the outstanding human services
agency that serves southern Santa Clara County as well as San Benito County.
She loves being able to serve her own local community as part of an organization
known for turning around lives of the less fortunate who may be victims of abuse
or human trafficking.
The event was attended by friends and family as well as community leaders
and past recipients of the Leadership Excellence Award — pictured below are
Roger Knopf, George Guglielmo, Michael Rubio, Sherry Hemingway, Rosie Bergen,
Mike Cox, Dana Ditmore and Joe Aiello. Leadership President Cricket Rubino pre-
sented Lisa with the award. Pictures below: Lisa with her two daughters, Leah and
Sarah Bernardini and with her brother Manny Vicente.
