On Monday June 1st Jamey Geston was honored by City Of Santa Barbara and Santa Barbara Teen Coalition for a Youth Leadership Award. Jen Baron, director of Girls Rock SB nominated Jamey and presented her award for contributing to both the community and her own personal growth through her music and to various non-profit organizations. In addition to her youth leader award, Geston was also a featured performer. Baron, who nominated her for the award wrote; “From the beginning of Girls Rock SB, she has been involved - volunteering at our summer camps, playing so many events with us and every time I am more and more impressed with her dedication, integrity and commitment to her community. Not only is she an incredible artist, but an even more incredible human being. Today we bow our heads to you, Jamey Geston, in humble gratitude for all you give to others and for all you've given to us. You rock.”
The banquet was held at the Cabrillo Pavilion Arts Center, 1118 Cabrillo Boulevard. She was unpretentious by the nomination, and though she does puts in countless time in the community, never thought she would be acknowledge for doing something she loves. Besides Girls Rock SB other charities Geston has worked with over the past few years include: Notes For Notes, Rockshop Academy, Santa Barbara Down Syndrome Association Buddy Walk, L.A.U.R.A (Life After Uncivil Ruthless Acts ) Foundation - Los Angeles, Kids With A Cause - Los Angeles, Carpinteria - Relay For Life, Carp Cares For Youth, Carpinteria Art Center, & Teen News Network to name a few.
