Tracie Cross, third from right, receives the Galt Community of Character Honesty Award for 2022 at the May 12 meeting of the Galt Joint Union High School District Board of Trustees.

The Galt Community of Character Coalition presented its 2022 honesty award to Tracie Cross, a member of Galt Sunrise Rotary and director of Galt Joint Union High School District’s Transition Partnership Program.

Following is the nomination narrative:

Tracie Cross is a true role model of honesty for the Galt community. In fact, the Galt Sunrise Rotary Club voted unanimously to nominate Tracie Cross for the 2022 Honesty Award.

In her activities for the Galt Sunrise Rotary Club, Tracie Cross is known for her people skills, work ethic and dependability that are second to none. Tracie navigates life’s curveballs with poise and grace, and when she must, she’s quick to point out inaccuracies, mistruths and the like.

And, as a Rotarian, Tracie lives by the following core principles:

1. Is it the truth?

2. Is it fair to all concerned?

3. Will it build goodwill and better friendships?

4. Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

It is called “The Four-Way Test of the things we think, say or do.”

From her leadership as director of the Interact Club of Galt, where she leads some 40 students on a journey into adulthood, to her role as club secretary, where she reports on and actively participates in all club activities, Tracie exemplifies all traits we associate with honesty.

In addition to her contributions at the Rotary Club, Tracie’s day job is as an educator with Galt Joint Union High School District’s TPP program, where she mentors youth in reaching their career objectives. That role certainly requires the utmost honesty in every sense of the word.

Tracie is truthful in all she does, sincere with every action she takes, and is a person of refreshing candor. It is for these reasons and so many more that Tracie Cross was nominated by the Galt Rotary Club for the Galt Community of Character Honesty Award for 2022.

Nominated by Mark King and the Galt Rotary Club
