On Thursday, Aug. 16, recent honor graduate Anthony Palazzola and junior Caitlin Alicea were celebrated at the Orange County Youth Bureau Summer Government Immersion Program graduation ceremony. Anthony was commended for volunteering 140 hours over the course of three summers with the county’s Veterans Services Department. Caitlin was commended for volunteering 72 hours this summer with the county’s Finance Department.
The Orange County Youth Bureau Summer Government Immersion Program matches high school students with a department that meets his or her interests and provides them with opportunities to learn more about government function and deepen their skill sets as they volunteer.
During the Aug. 16 ceremony, each of the County Department Supervisors spoke about Anthony and Caitlin’s professionalism and conduct.
