Bruce Hockett Memorial Director's Choice Endowed Award
Bruce Hockett was a 1975 graduate of Ramona High School in Riverside. While attending Ramona, he played the clarinet in three different school bands: marching band, jazz band and concert band and sang in the school choirs and madrigals. At Ramona, he received the John Phillips Sousa Award which recognizes outstanding dedication and superior musicianship. Through his musical education Bruce developed a life-long appreciation for a variety of musical forms.
