It's great to see these youngsters get a chance to see what life is like outside the P-Town bubble. Kudos to the parents for supporting their teens to participate in these activities.

Thousands of teens go above and beyond if adults are respectful and don't hound them.

Pleasanton is definitely full of great teens that do and accomplish amazing things. They do it on different levels, yet not one more important than the other. It is nice to be in a place that produces and celebrates more than just the high school sports stars. Sure, some teenagers (even good tens) are going to do stupid stuff sometimes, but as a whole, the parents of Pleasanton have done a great job in raising their kids with a sense of personal and societal pride.
