On a rainy Saturday morning, it was an aberration to be on the Hercules High School campus attending my first ILC tutorial as a chaperone. There was a lot of pertinent information being presented and I had the chance to meet three outstanding ILCers from the Cornell program. I saw a vast amount of anticipation on the eyes of the students participating on the various programs offered by the ILC. Some parents showed up for support and they were engaged as well. I look forward to the great and wonderful journey ahead us.
