Longtime community activist Debbi Guthrie will receive the school’s first Legacy Award, according to a statement.

Guthrie has served on numerous boards, including the Riverside Sports Hall of Fame, ATHENA of Riverside and the Greater Riverside Chambers of Commerce.

A graduate of Cal State San Bernardino, Guthrie has worked on projects designed to help the Riverside Community College District, according to the statement.


Also receiving an award will be Dr. Salvador Hernandez, who has been named Riverside City College’s 2018 Alumnus of the Year.
