Imperial Valley Eagle Scout Joins Assemblymember Garcia for State of the State
(Sacramento) – Assemblymember Eduardo Garcia (D-Coachella) had a special guest with him for Governor Jerry Brown’s 16th and final State of the State address. Eagle Scout Joaquin Villegas, who started a community service scout project to have a monument dedicated to Veterans from throughout the Valley and of all six branches of the armed forces, sat in the gallery as the Governor delivered his speech. A dedication ceremony for the completed monument was held recently. “I made a project that I thought would benefit the veterans and fortunately I was very lucky to have opportunities like this to come to me,” Villegas said.
