Le’Wanda Croft: Day of Serving
Paola Dela Cruz: Leading My Team

Highlights from the weekend included a public presentation of all projects, a program completion ceremony, and a reception for family and friends. The program was led by instructors Carol Tisson, Jacqueline Olivera, and Cindy Levine and was supported by AUSB President Nancy Leffert, Board of Trustees member Susan Rose, W&L program coordinator Lindsay Crissman, and former W&L program director Judy Bruton.
