Of Note

Pleasanton residents Olivia Cantrell and Charles Platt are performing in StarStruck Theater's musical production of "Les Miserables" (school edition) at Ohlone College Amphitheater in Fremont. Cantrell, a 2010 Valley Christian High School graduate, plays a "lovely lady" while Platt, a freshman at Amador Valley High School, is part of the ensemble and performs multiple roles such as a laborer, beggar, student and chorus member.

"Les Miserables" is based on Victor Hugo's classic novel set in 19th century France and tells the story of ex-convict Jean Valjean as he tries to start a new life while being pursued by policeman Javert. Performances are at 8:15 p.m., Thursday-Saturday, July 23-Aug. 14. Tickets cost $20 to $25.

Junior Achievement internship

Rahael Elizabeth Borchers, a senior at Amador Valley High School, was chosen by Bank of America's Student Leaders Program to participate in an eight-week, paid internship with the nonprofit Junior Achievement of Northern California. She was chosen due to her leadership and service in the community.

In addition to the internship Borchers attended a week-long Student Leadership Summit in Washington, D.C. The summit included meetings on Capitol Hill, leadership sessions and environmental activities to show how service and nonprofits benefit communities economically.
