Congratulations to these kids, and to the teachers who mentored them through this process. I am continually amazed at the wide array of wonderful learning opportunities available to Pleasanton kids. What a great accomplishment for these kids. Kudos to all of the teachers, administrators, and support staff in Pleasanton. We are truly very lucky to live in a town with such fine schools.

Congrats to all of those who were involved in this great achievement. The world can now hear Amador Valley High School's [Pleasanton] voice for solutions on critical global issues at the G8 summit.

Wonderful story. I applaud this opportunity for our youth, who are on the cusp of adulthood, to become involved in world affairs. They can make a difference. I hope the paper will follow-up with perhaps some articles about what their proposals are.
