This year our event was held at a charming venue, ‘The Olde Magnolia Tea Room’, in Upland. Alta Loma High School, Etiwanda High School, Los Osos High School and Rancho Cucamonga High School counselors all selected girls to attend the event. The purpose of the event was for the girls to hear inspirational speeches from successful young professionals at a fun and memorable location. The speakers were young women who currently work in various careers such as fire service, law enforcement, journalism, dentistry, social work, and local government. The speakers shared about life experiences, the value of education and the importance of goal setting, despite the reality of possible failures. The girls were attentive and interacted well with the speakers all while they enjoyed their lovely afternoon tea treats. Ultimately, our goal is for the counselors, speakers and Rotarians to communicate with each other concerning the progress of each girl for the remainder of the school year, because they may need mentorship and additional guidance, in order to achieve their educational and career planning goals.
