Roseville, Loomis residents honored by Placer County

-A +A
Two Roseville-area residents’ accomplishments did not go unnoticed by the Placer County Board of Supervisors who honored them Tuesday by awarding them with commemorative coins. The board annually honors Placer County residents who make an impact in their community. C.H. Vincent, a resident of Loomis, coached soccer teams from 1979 to 2004 and spent 23 seasons as a softball coach in five cities, dedicating 32 years to serving the community. Dr. Irwin Herman, a Sun City Roseville resident, helped develop the Placer County Medical Reserve Corps after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and has served on multiple county boards and commissions. “I am very proud to provide Dr. Irwin Herman this commemorative coin for the many hours he has given to this community and I know the many more hours he is going to give after I give him this coin,” District 1 Supervisor Jack Duran said. Herman has served on the Placer County Older Adult Advisory Commission since 2004 and currently is vice chair. Additionally, he is chair of the city of Roseville Senior Commission, an advisory body he joined eight years ago. The other person to be recognized, C.H. Vincent, also assisted with the varsity softball team at Del Oro High School in 1988 and managed and assisted with baseball teams in the South Placer Little League. Since 1986, Vincent has run the clock and scoreboard at home girls basketball games at Del Oro High while his wife, Earlene, runs the shot clock. He also has been involved in the Save Our Sports campaign that benefits the athletic program at Del Oro. “Over the years, Coach, as he is affectionately referred to now by hundreds, if not thousands of youngsters like myself, has dedicated 32 years to serving his community, most of them after his kids already were grown,” District 4 Supervisor Kirk Uhler said. “It is my great honor today to recognize the man I grew up calling coach and now have the pleasure of calling friend, Mr. C. H. Vincent.” Among others recognized were City of Lincoln officials who helped during the Aug. 23 propane tanker fire in Lincoln. ~ Staff report
