The meeting opened with three students from Edwin Loe Elementary School giving a presentations as prominent civil rights leaders, including Chief Drags Wolf and Rosa Parks for the board members. The students were part of the elementary school’s Ambassador Program. Under the program, students chose by their classmates act as mentors and leaders in the school.
