Karen Jahr, Redding, has been awarded the prestigious Angelo Rolando Memorial Award by the California Grand Jurors' Association (CGJA). This award is made annually for outstanding service to the Association and was announced at the Association's 33rd Annual Conference in Burbank on November 13.
Jahr served as County Counsel of Shasta County, 1991-2008. She has been active in the Shasta County Grand Jurors' Association since its inception in 2002. She is a lifetime member of the chapter and served as a director. The CGJA’s Board of Directors just elected Jahr as the association’s president. She has served on many committees and has been a trainer for nine years.
The CGJA is a state-wide, nonprofit organization of former grand jurors dedicated to promoting government accountability by improving the training and resources available to California's 58 regular grand juries and educating the public about the substantial local government oversight and reporting powers those grand juries have.
