The College of the Canyons Foundation has selected Gary and Myrna Condie as the recipients of the “Silver Spur” Community Service Award for 2010.

The award ceremony will be held at the Autry National Center on Saturday, March 6, 2010.

“It’s an honor to be chosen by the college as Silver Spur honorees,” said Gary Condie, founder and president/CEO of Condie & Wood, CPAs. “When you look over the list of prior honorees, you see how important these people have been to the college and to the community.”

The two were selected for their community service and dedication to many local non-profit organizations and causes.

Gary Condie is an active supporter of the Boys and Girls Club of Santa Clarita, the Boy Scouts of America, the Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital Foundation, the College of the Canyons Foundation and the SCV Facilities Foundation. He most recently received the 2009 California Society of CPA’s 100th Anniversary Public Service Award.

“It’s humbling to be asked by the college to be a part of the 2010 Silver Spur celebration,” said Myrna Condie. “Next year will mark the 40th anniversary for the college and the 20th anniversary for Silver Spur. It will be fun to return to the Gene Autry Museum where it all began.”

Recently named the 2009 California Mother of the Year by the California Association of American Mothers, Myrna Condie is also involved with the Boys and Girls Club of Santa Clarita, the Boy Scouts of America and is a College of the Canyons Foundation board member.

Since 1999, the couple has offered support for projects and programs at the community college, including the Performing Arts Center Endowment, the Early Childhood Education Center, the Foundation’s Silver Spur event and the Boys and Girls Club At Risk Scholarship.

For the past three years, Gary and Myrna Condie have served as co-chairs of the Silver Spur committee.

“The Condies’ record of service is uniquely impressive, given that they invest so much of themselves in what they undertake for the benefit of the community,” said College of the Canyons Chancellor Dr. Dianne Van Hook.

“We are so grateful for the many ways they have supported College of the Canyons and created exciting opportunities for us to better serve our students. It is an honor to recognize them as our Silver Spur honorees for 2010 and thank them for their many years of service, support and friendship.”
