Olympic Spirit to be Honored by Board of Supervisors
(Santa Ana, CA) — The Orange County Board of Supervisors will honor the Olympians who live and train in Orange County, as well as the organizations that support their Olympic endeavors, during their October 30 Board meeting.
A special reception and recognition for Orange County Olympians is being co-hosted by the Orange County Leadership Academy Alumni Association and OC Parks on behalf of the Board of Supervisors. “This is a wonderful opportunity to salute our Orange County Olympic athletes and officials who are a source of great pride for our communities and our country,” said Board Chairman John M.W. Moorlach, Second District Supervisor. “We invite the public to attend the opening of our October 30 Board meeting to join us in showing our appreciation to those Olympians and organizations that call Orange County home.”
The Board of Supervisors meeting begins at 9:30 a.m. and is held in the Board Hearing Room of the Hall of Administration, 333 W. Santa Ana Blvd. in Santa Ana.
Orange County has a rich Olympic history that in recent years has grown to include serving as a training site for Olympians in sports including water polo and volleyball. All Olympians who live or train in Orange County have been invited to attend, with representatives of USA Water Polo among those who have indicated they will be present.
The Orange County Leadership Academy is a leadership development program that helps participants become better public servants and leaders through a commitment to the principles of servant leadership. More than 500 County employees have participated in the Academy since it was started in 2004.
