In 2012 the RUBY Award  was presented to a person who was born and raised in Waupaca and only left to further his education.  He has always felt a special connection to the community and considers it his role to better the community. His motivation is the gratification of knowing he helped others and made Waupaca a better place.


RUBY Awards 2013 005-adjustedThe Selection Committee chose Stephen Saunders of Waupaca Dental Excellence as the 2014 RUBY Award Recipient. Stephen was selected as the recipient because of his passion for working on things that really make a difference in the community. Stephan’s involvement with the Jaycees, coaching hockey and soccer have enhanced his life by not only giving back to the Waupaca community that has embraced him for the last ten years but has introduced him to great people that have become his friends. This has enhanced his career, as the friends, who have entrusted him, also have become dental patients.
