The Marysville Rotary Club will make a $500 donation to a youth leadership program developed and managed by the Alliance for Hispanic Advancement, the Board of Directors decided at its meeting Monday, July 19. As explained by Rotary Guest Speaker Grace Espindola, the program is intended to focus on leadership development among youth who may not normally get the opportunity to develop confidence by leading a team or developing public business skills. The first Mexican-American Immigrant to be elected to the Yuba City Council, Grace last week discussed her travel with her mother from Mexico to join her father who had come to the southwest United States in the bracero ag worker program, and how much work is actually involved in being a City Council member.
