The City Council of Barstow recognized one of their own last week by presenting a certificate of accomplishment to Tehya Trujillio. This young woman is just a freshman in high school, yet has worked tirelessly to raise significant money and toys for Barstow’s local Christmas, Cops & Kids program. The impressive part of the story is that she began helping the program when she was just a fourth grader.
Tehya organizes many community events with the proceeds going to help Barstow’s Christmas program. The city recognizes their youth that go above and beyond to make a positive impact in their community.
Commitment like this should be recognized by our city leaders. I commend Tehya for her efforts and the leaders in Barstow for distinguishing her.
