My very best wishes to this talented dedicated young woman. I'm betting she'll make a huge difference in her chosen career. Her skills plus her personal history vav neurological issues are an unstoppable combo.

I was fortunate to have coached a local MV AYSO youth soccer team with Christine the year after her father passed (while she was still at MVHS). Her younger brother and my oldest son were both on the team. In all my years of playing sports and coaching and tutoring youths, this proved to be one of my more meaningful and memorable experiences - working regularly with Christine. I admire her and am confident that she will have a positive impact - she is bright, driven, sweet, strong responsible and a very positive role model.

Another of Mountain View's pubic-school-educated students is doing great things. What a wonderful story. Congratulations to Christine, her family, and MVHS.

Thank you to the MV Voice for a story about one of our many local youth who are doing great things in life.

By the way, Chris Egerton, the student whose poor judgement about a Valentine's Day joke became headline news in the Voice, will be attending Oberlin College's Conservatory of Music in the fall to study cello performance.
