Teen Volunteers in Action-SD2 Senior Send Off at CCA

Teen Volunteers in Action (TVIA-SD2) held its annual Senior Send Off on May 4 at the Proscenium Theatre at Canyon Crest Academy. Twenty-two graduating seniors were honored. The seniors from Torrey Pines High School, Cathedral Catholic High School, Francis Parker, The Bishop’s School, La Jolla Country Day and Canyon Crest Academy spoke individually about their experience in TVIA and also thanked their parents and chapter volunteers for their guidance.

President Catherine Weselak congratulated the seniors for their accomplishments and their commitment to giving back to their community. Keynote speaker for the event was Tom McCarthy, a recognized corporate consultant, speaker, author and coach. McCarthy gave an inspirational talk on “Breakthrough to Greatness,” encouraging each senior to create their own story of excellence. Senior Charles Bieler presented the senior class gift, a donation to the Ronald McDonald House, an organization that provides housing, meals and care for families of hospitalized children at Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego.
