On December 3, 2005 the Appeal-Democrat reported, "Faith, family and community are the central pillars around which the lives of the Dr. Paramjit S. Everest family revolve. The focus earned them the title of Sutter County Family of the Year in ceremonies at River Valley High School in Yuba City... 51-year-old Everest, a dentist in the area... and his wife, Surinder K. Everest, have three children - daughters Amarpreet, 15, and Harkiren, 9, and son, Harpreet, 20. His parents, Hari S. Everest, 89, and Amar K. Everest, 81, live with the family in the Tierra Buena area at the west edge of Yuba City... Everest is a volunteer for the annual Hersey track meet, coaches basketball, helps out at the nearby Sikh Temple, is dental adviser to the area Headstart program and is a past president and founding member of the Punjabi-American Society... Surinder Everest is a part-time school teacher and has made it a point, along with her husband, to attend school, temple and community events family members are involved in. A worker in the literacy program at the Sutter County Library, she said she encourages her children to do their best in everything they do for themselves, the family and the community."
