Here is Nianza Delfin who was a Distinguished Scholar in 2014; she recently sent this photo to me. (I also really like this photo of Raleigh and Barbara) In 2020 Nianza won the Imperial Beach Optimists Essay Contest. When I met her (pre shutdown) to present the essay award, she said how grateful she was and this was the second time she won an Optimist award. She is now a student at UCSD, and she said she knows several other 2014 scholars who are attending major universities. This reminds me that what we do matters, even years later! Here’s hoping 2021 can bring us all good news!
