FIRST HOPE FOR AMERICA AWARD
The first Costa Mesa Kiwanis Club Hope of America Award was
presented to Costa Mesa High School student, Nakita Brown. Instructor
Jerry Howell accompanied her. His recommendation that Nakita be given
the award was read by Michael Bare.
"Without any doubt, Nakita Brown fits the description of a student
who has demonstrated academic accomplishments, leadership and good
character," Bare said. "These are the criteria for which the Kiwanis
Club bestows their Hope of America Award. Evidence of Nakita's
dedication can be found in her participation in ASB student
government and other extracurricular activities."
"Nakita is an excellent student who has found the perfect balance
between academics and extracurricular activities," said club
president Dee Pritchard.
The main lobby of the Balboa Bay Club has been transformed into a
winter wonderland by student chefs in the culinary program at The Art
Institute of California, Orange County.
Under the leadership of the Institute's Pastry Chef, Rich Royal,
and in partnership with the Balboa Bay Club's Executive Chef, Joseph
Lageder, the team has built a 12-foot by nine-foot pastry mountain
and village, with forty gingerbread houses, a working railroad, a ski
lift and even a chocolate boat at the town wharf.
Guests and visitors can enjoy this fabulous creation as well as
the thousands of glistening lights and holiday decorations that help
create a festive feeling throughout the resort.
