Ms. Sue Smith
Costa Mesa, Calfornia
Dear Ms. Smith: It is my sincere pleasure to inform you that you have been selected as the recipient of the Costa Mesa Mayor’s Award for March 2006. The Mayor’s Award Program was designed to recognize individuals in our City who have served the community through acts of professionalism and dedicated service.
You have devoted countless hours and time to the Sister City Education Exchange Program, a component of the Sister City Agreement between the City of Costa Mesa and Wyndham, Australia. Since your founding of the program in 1997, you have provided an educational “once in a life-time” opportunity for the teachers, students and families involved in the Newport Mesa Unified School District and those at Wyndham. You have accomplished this over the years with enthusiasm and passion.
On behalf of the City Council, I am most appreciative of the leadership you have shown to our community. Your commitment to young people and the teachers in Wyndham through the Sister City Education Exchange Program is a great example of how education widens horizons and bridges international relations. The meeting will take place in Council Chambers at 6:00 p.m. at Costa Mesa City Hall, 77 Fair Drive.
