The Arcadia Recreation & Community Services Department has declared Joanna Ling the city’s 2023 senior of the year, officials announced Tuesday.

A frequent volunteer and active member of a variety of community organizations, Ling was chosen as the 2023 honoree after the department fielded nominations of Arcadia residents 55 and over who have “contributed to better the Arcadia community,” according to the city’s announcement. The Arcadia senior commissioners vote on the nominations. 

Since the mid-1990s Ling has served as a volunteer board member to as well as president of many Arcadia organizations, city officials said. Groups she’s been involved with include the Arcadia Unified School District Booster Club, Mentor Mom, Arcadia Chinese Association, Arcadia Library English Conversation Class Chair, Arcadia Library Foundation Board of Trustees, the Gilb Museum of Arcadia Heritage, Las Alas, Arcadia Women’s Club and quite a few more. 

“The City of Arcadia would like to congratulate Joanna for her efforts for going above and beyond on her many contributions and accolades within the community,” officials said in a statement. 

Ling is set to receive honors at the 2024 Older American Recognition Lunch. The event will be hosted by the Los Angeles County Commission for Older Adults and the county Aging & Disabilities Department on May 16 at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in downtown LA.

Ling is also scheduled be honored at the Arcadia City Council meeting on May 21.
