The beautiful podium used by the students to deliver their speeches at the Student Advisory Board presentation at the SLV Senior Center at Highlands Park was a donation from 14th District Representative, Anna Eshoo. This gift was prompted when, during the Valley Women’s Club Annual General Meeting in 2011 where she was a featured speaker. When she got up to make her speech, she was chagrined to find no place to set down her papers as she spoke. Seeing the need, and realizing the value to the community at large because of the broad use of the Senior Center facility, Anna promised to provide them with a podium! Several weeks later, the wood podium was delivered and placed at the stage for all to use for the many events held at the center. The VWC provided the bronze plaque identifying Anna’s contribution. THANK YOU Congresswoman Eshoo!
