November the Escondido Chamber of Commerce hosted its 2nd  Rising Star Student of the Month breakfast where seven high school seniors were honored by their school principal, teacher and parents. Elected officials also presented certificates of achievement to each of the students.

Rorie Johnston, Chamber chief executive officer, commented, “Though this event is meant to honor students, everyone in attendance walks away feeling inspired and blessed. We heard from a Dragon Slayer, Change Maker, Challenge Embracer, Life Lover, Connection Innovator, Knowledge Giver and Dream Follower. Each student spoke with passion and demonstrated compassion for their fellow human beings.”
