Sierra Madre Honors Derek Podrebarac as Fourth of July Grand Marshal

We are pleased to announce Sierra Madre’s own Derek Podrebarac as the 2017 Fourth of July Parade Grand Marshal. “The Grand Marshal is a person whose efforts over a long period of time have benefited to the Sierra Madre community. The Grand Marshal title honors a person or persons’ work, dedication and overall enhancements to our community.” Derek is an inspiring leader and volunteer, and has time and again embodied the spirit of Sierra Madre.

Derek Podrebarac spent the last 17 years calling Sierra Madre home with his family. He was born in Pasadena, grew up in La Crescenta and lived in South Pasadena, Monrovia and now Sierra Madre. Derek exemplifies what it means to be a true Sierra Madrean through his passion for giving back to his community. In addition to serving as a Real Estate Agent for Podley Properties, Derek’s volunteer efforts are felt throughout the community. He frequently volunteers at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. He gives blood to save the lives of those who rely upon his rare blood type.

Derek is a tireless advocate, and volunteers for Habitat for Humanity. He spent time rebuild homes in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, and more recently, projects in Mississippi. He generously donates his time to homeless shelters in Pasadena, and is an active leader in his local church. Derek’s passion for baseball has led him to become a devoted leader with the Sierra Madre Little League. He has coached and managed baseball teams in the league for the past seven years, contributing his talents and energy to multiple teams and age groups simultaneously.

Derek selflessly gives his time to improve youth sports in our community for children of all ages and abilities. For example, he organized, and now heads, the Challenger Division for SMLL, a Little League division designed for special needs children. In addition, he currently serves on the Board of Directors for the league.

In addition, Derek serves as a mentor to youth athletes as a baseball coach at Maranatha High School and other schools throughout the region. His motivation for serving his community stems from his pleasure in meeting and getting to know new people and their interests. He is a shining example of the sort of person who makes Sierra Madre such a magical place to live.
