Danny Jimenez checked his smartphone for information while he was shooting photos at a recent Reedley High School girls soccer match. Jimenez, a longtime community fixture, was selected as the Citizen of the Year for 2019.



Danny Jimenez had a long career as head custodian for the Kings Canyon Unified School District, and in retirement has continued his love for Reedley High School and the city through volunteer activities and involvement in extracurricular school activities and sports.

Because of this, Jimenez has been selected as Reedley’s Citizen of the Year for 2019 by the Greater Reedley Chamber of Commerce. He will be among award winners honored as the chamber’s annual awards gala and dinner on Saturday, Feb. 23, at Reedley College.

This week, the chamber announced that the late Pam Melville will be this year’s inductee into the Hall of Fame. Melville owned and operated David’s boutique in downtown Reedley for nearly four decades before her death from cancer last June.
