The Lord has blessed the Town of Oro Valley in many ways. It has been recognized as the safest town in Arizona, the parks are immaculate and the roads are well maintained. I’ll leave the rest of the story to this month’s honored speaker, Oro Valley Mayor, Dr. Satish Hiremath.
Dr. Hiremath was born in 1963 and grew up in Kalamazoo, Michigan. He graduated with a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan and a degree in Dentistry from Howard University College of Dentistry.
In 1990, he fell in love with Oro Valley, where he established his home and dentistry practice. He has a long history of community service, contributing to many youth, family and community organizations.
Dr. Hiremath has served as Mayor of Oro Valley since 2010. He previously served as chair of the Regional Transportation Authority and is a board member of the Bioscience Roadmap Steering Committee. He has also served as chair of the Pima Associations of Governments and president of the Southern Arizona Arts and Cultural Alliance. In 2007, Dr. Hiremath was elected “Community Leader of the Year” by the Northern Pima County Chamber of Commerce.
