As CEO of the Pacifica Chamber of Commerce & Visitor’s Center, I was honored to be asked to judge the Caritas Leadership Program presentations. I was simply amazed at the in-depth preparation and strategic execution that each student group presented. I was also enthralled by the serious subject matters along with the level of detail and commitment that these high school students conveyed. Each was well-spoken and truly showed compassionate care and believed they could help make a difference in the people whose lives they touched. It speaks volumes of this leadership program as it’s refreshing to see high school students care so much about others, especially when they put their great minds and caring hearts together. Our community and this world truly stands a chance of being a better place with such bright young minds committed to making a difference!
