What a terrific article written by Alyssa Thome.
I am lucky enough to know her and her family. And
she is right. Pleasanton is an amazing community and
I feel very lucky to have raised my children here. But
Alyssa should and did give credit to her amazing family.
Each and every member of her family here in Pleasanton, have modeled
for her what it means to be a communtiy member and the value
of helping others. Way to go, Alyssa! We can't wait to see
where your life takes you.
PS - I am sending this article to the parents in my class so that they
might get a glimpse of what is possible for their own children here in Pleasanton.
