Contra Costa County Humanitarian of the Year Award

Terri Potter
2016 Humanitarian of The Year

Our 2016 Humanitarian of the Year has long been known for her tenacity. Even as a child, she volunteered at school, served at church, and helped raise younger cousins and family members. Her path from Baton Rouge to Contra Costa County has included an impressive track record of working with school districts and governments at every level. And her grassroots work with students and families has made a significant difference in the lives of hundreds of Central County teens over the years.
