Thank You

Dear Editor,

I want to extend my deep appreciation to the John Muir Mentoring Partnership and Youth Development program (MPYD) for creating a scholarship in my mother Barbara's name.

Residents of Pasadena and Altadena have been extremely welcoming and warm to me since I first introduced myself. Over the past two years, the concern and prayers for my mom and for my family has been extraordinary and greatly appreciated. I have had the opportunity to see the excellent work of MPYD and to meet and spend time with the terrific young men in the program. My mother instilled in us the value of education and she would have been humbled to have received such an honor.

Congratulations Jeremy Rodgers on receiving the Barbara Portantino Memorial Scholarship and thank you MPYD for making this happen.

Anthony Portantino
