Community Support

Hello everyone! Here's a little update on what the Hercules ILC squad has been up recently. 

All seven Hercules High participants of the 2010 ILC were able to participate in the April Hercules City Council meeting. Each of us was introduced before the five-member council and alloted time for a brief speech about who we are, where we are going this summer, what we will learn/benefit, who we want to thank, etc. (On a side note, the City Council was very impressed that Hercules is represented in all 4 of the Ivy League schools participating in this year's program!) In addition, all seven students were included in a group photo with the city council thanks to Don. I will be sure to check if it gets posted in the office along with the past ILC group photos.

On behalf of the entire Hercules squad, I would like to thank again all of the individuals involved in the ILC. I would also like to thank my school and the Hercules City Council for their immeasurable support. They have continually promoted the ILC and the importance of education throughout the community.

I look forward to reporting back to the City Council in the fall and telling everyone about my adventures this summer. Thanks again for selecting me as a program ambassador. Can't wait to meet everyone at the dinner next Tuesday!


  1. Thanks Yueming. I appreciate your comments. Since you have been in the program now for two years you fully understand what is needed and expected from everyone associated with the program.

    Take care.

  2. Yueming,

    I knew we could count on you to blog and keep the world abreast of what's going on. Thanks. Nice photo, too.
