Scouts honor Rockholm

-A +A
The Golden Empire Council of the Boy Scouts of America recently honored Placer County Supervisor F.C. “Rocky” Rockholm at a community dinner in his honor for extraordinary leadership and promoting the spirit of Scouting in Placer County. The Boy Scout dinner identifies one community leader each year who reflects the ideals of the Boy Scouts and who serves the community with dedication. Rockholm and his sons were active Scouts as part of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints’ Young Men’s program. In addition to supporting the young men of his congregation in their scouting activities, he served many years as their Sunday school teacher. Many youth would ask to remain in his Sunday school class even when it was necessary for them to move on to new teachers because of their deep respect and appreciation for him. Rockholm’s dedication to Placer County youth goes far beyond his own children and the youth of his church. As a police officer in the Roseville Police Department, Rockholm was instrumental in starting, directing and running the DARE and PALS program. Even after leaving the department, he’s still called on to help run and support these programs. As a member of the Placer County Board of Supervisors, he continues to ensure that the needs and issues of the youth of Placer County are given priority at all levels of county government.
