Wally Mees introduced Brook Dougherty, head of Young Angels of America, who told us a bit about her organization—in the last 10 years they have raised $0.5 million for charitable work including a project in Watts—and told us a bit about our Student of the Month, Amy Dersh. She has been in Young Angels of America for several years and working with young people; she is a senior at Pali High, is a photojournalist, and is the only Caucasian member of the Black Student’s Congress at Pali. Amy, accompanied by her parents, Steven and Jennifer Dersh, thanked the Club and received a standing ovation for her accomplishments.
