From time to time I think it is important to recognize Telesis Graduates, our alumni, in what they have accomplished and what they have become. If you are reading this and you are a Telesis Alum, please email me or comment to this post to tell me where you are and what you are doing, so I can spotlight you in this way.
For this first post, I will fall prey to my motherly instincts and recognize a Telesis Graduate of the Class of 1997, my son, Ryan Breece. Ryan was recently recognized by the San Diego City Council for his heroic work as Vice President of Information Systems for the San Diego North Chamber of Commerce, a position he has held since 2002. During the recent wild fires that tore through southern California, Ryan added an important section to the Chamber website, The San Diego Fire Recovery Resource Guide (http://www.sdncc.com/). Councilman Brian Maienschein also presented Ryan with a Special Commendation honoring his work in developing the Resource Guide. It helped San Diego and the many surrounding communities to reach out to the victims of these fires who strive to put their lives back together. Everything from shelter to food to blankets, the Resource Guide enabled San Diegans to help their neighbors recover from this tragedy.
We at Telesis are proud of you, Ryan, and of the good character you have demonstrated in your many achievements. At Telesis, character always comes first.
