New wheels for Esperanza JROTC student

Josh Allen is a freshman at Esperanza High School, and is currently enrolled in the Air Force Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) program. His aerospace science class is at zero period, and each morning he used his bicycle to get to school. Unfortunately, Josh's bike was stolen last week, which left him no choice but to walk the three-miles to school each day in order to arrive by 6:50 a.m.

A call was made to Greg Young and Jim Van Ry. Both are long-time Yorba Linda residents, and members of Vietnam Veterans of America, Chapter 785. They got the word out on the Yorba Linda Buzz Facebook group, and Todd Johnson, another Yorba Linda resident, quickly stepped up with the donation of a new mountain bike. After getting a quick tune-up at a local bike shop and adding a lock, Greg and Jim came to Esperanza on Tuesday morning to present the bike to a very appreciative Josh Allen.
Our community is healthy and strong, and a great place to raise a family. Likewise, our schools deliver excellence every day. It's the generous support of people like Todd Johnson, Greg Young and Jim Van Ry that make this possible!
