A graduation ceremony was recently held for the Eleanor Jean Grier Leadership Academy in Riverside. Riverside Mayor Ron Loveridge congratulated the graduates and welcomed them into active participation of community leadership roles.
The keynote speaker for the event was Honorable Judge Richard Fields, the first African American Judge in Riverside County, 2007-2008 where he served as the Presiding Judge for the county. He spoke of his own history and the step-by-step progress he benefitted from studying, working hard and the encouragement of his mother to be whatever he wanted to be. However, success required being prepared for opportunities as they presented themselves and finding ways to build his dream.
He congratulated the academy graduates for the steps they have taken to prepare for opportunities to emerge.
