The teens of Pomona had their first meeting on June 20, 2017. Needless to say the meeting was a success! Many Pomona teens showed up and received a HUGE surprise (courtesy of Lifestyle Manager, Lori Evans). The Mayor of Manvel, Debra Davison, came to advise us on how we too could be leaders, regardless of our age. We sought to find the answers to several questions. What makes a leader, a leader? What qualities do they possess? How can we become leaders in our own community of Pomona? We answered all of these questions in order to create a mission statement for our newly found group. However, before we could create our mission we had to come up with a name. I'd like to introduce everyone to the - Pomona Teen Advisory Board!!! Our mission is simple, to take ownership in our community and make a difference. Our next meeting will be July 11th at 10:30 a.m. and we will be electing the many important positions that will keep us on track in order to reach our goals. We are excited for what the future holds!
