Sunburst Youth Academy Graduation

June 22, 2015
I was honored to join cadets and parents on a very special day for the Sunburst Youth Academy graduates.

I presented special recognition awards with Dr. Jeff Hittenberger, Chief Academic Officer at the Orange County Department of Education (OCDE). Supporting the California Youth Challenge program has to be one of the most fulfilling parts of my service these past two and a half years in the US House of Representatives.

It is truly an honor to represent the 47th district of California which I am so proud to say, includes the Los Alamitos Joint Forces Training Base and the outstanding Sunburst Youth Academy program.
