WPUSA LeaderNet alumni comprised part of a 500 person gathering of elected officials, community leaders and high school students Tuesday to watch the inauguration of President Barack Obama. While a continent away from Washington, D.C. the group celebrated the new administration in the Mexican Heritage Plaza Theater.

LeaderNet alumna Teresa Alvarado, executive director of the Hispanic Foundation of Silicon Valley, and Leon Beauchman, board member, Santa Clara County Board of Education, energized the crowd and prepared them for discussions to stimulate local change. The small group discussions allowed people to connect, celebrate a new day for our country and explore how to answer President Obama's call to service.
