The City of Hayward celebrates thirty-one years of honoring its volunteers. Every Hayward agency has been asked to select a volunteer - a Shining Star - who has given outstanding service to the agency and to the Hayward community. Below are the faces and stories of these 2008 Shining Stars of Hayward. Their contributions and volunteerism make the City of Hayward shine with pride and gratification. We honor each and every person who has strengthened community life in Hayward and has inspired others to give of themselves. They form an impressive body of volunteers, and remind us that each of us has something to give to our communities.
