I have lived in Castro Valley all my life.  It has been interesting to watch our community grow throughout these years.   One of the most exciting moments of this time has been seeing this beautiful performing arts building become a reality and a great source of entertainment for so many residents and neighbors of our community.  So it is with great pleasure that I am now able to serve the community by volunteering on this board.

As a retired elementary teacher in this school district I can only emphasize how important it is to have this building for our students to see live performances and be able to perform in such a professional setting.  It can be life changing for many of them.
