1/13/23 - Jared Mathis, President of Moulton Museum and CEO of Moulton Company, presented the second Moulton Award.
Celebrating Heritage and the Pioneer Spirit
The Moulton Award
The Moulton Award was presented by Jared Mathis, Moulton Museum’s President and CEO of Moulton Company. The Moulton Award was established in 2022 as a way to honor and celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Laguna Hills. According to Mathis, “Moulton tradition is one formed of equal parts grit and strong work ethic along with a heavy dose of creativity, vision, and an appreciation for community.”
At Moulton Museum, we call this the Pioneer Spirit. This is based on, “the core Moulton family values passed down through the generations manifested in driving hard towards our goals, to not be afraid to think big and to appreciate the people and environment around us.”
Jared’s great-grandparents, Lewis Fenno Moulton and Nellie Gail Moulton, left us a remarkable legacy of business, philanthropic and environmental achievements. We are proud to recognize our recipients of the Moulton Award carry that same spirit.
Karen Robbins, 2023 Moulton Award Recipient
Karen Robbins, this year’s 2023 Moulton Award recipient, exudes qualities of the pioneer spirit. Her achievements include, but are not limited to, building Laguna Hill’s connection to Team Darkhorse, a 5th Marines non-profit organization focused on the provision of encouragement, relief, and comfort to the Marines, Sailors, and their respective families of the 3rd Battalion, 5th Marines USMC.
According to Immediate Past President of the Chamber of Commerce, “Karen has been the longtime leader of the 3/5 Marines Team Darkhorse here in Laguna Hills. Through her many years of dedicated service, she has made our city almost synonymous with the 3/5 Marines, providing amazing support for them and their families, and making our city a household name among them. We feel that she has displayed the pioneering spirit and commitment to our community that we were looking for in a Moulton recipient.” Congratulations, Karen for your achievement!
