Under 40 choices

San Luis ObispoJanuary 5, 2014 

I was overjoyed to see the Top 20 Under 40 list. As the mother of three high schoolers, I have had personal contact with four recipients and could not agree more with your selections.

Anna Bates is one of the best teachers at San Luis Obispo High School. She adds her enthusiasm to every project before, during and after school. She is a role model for those whose work is their passion.

Anna Boyd-Bucy runs the best community service experience for SLOHS students: Big Brothers, Big Sisters. Every week they spend time with youngsters who truly need them. It is life changing for all involved.

Mike Wozniak has single-handedly changed boys basketball in SLO with the 3Ball Academy. He teaches not only basketball fundamentals but also sportsmanship. His students bring those qualities to high school sports. It is easy to recognize a 3Baller on the court.

Finally, Tawnee Hosick is an accomplished professional as well as amom of a high schooler. I have followed her career through our daughters’ schooling, and am continually amazed at her accomplishments. All of these leaders teach by example, and I am so grateful they had been involved in my children’s lives.
