The Pearls of Perfection Debutante Program recognizes notable young ladies from across the San Francisco/Oakland Bay Area who have demonstrated superior academic excellence, exemplary moral standards and are actively engaged in their local communities.

This comprehensive program – designed to develop young ladies (and gentlemen) who are Polished, Poised and Preparedbegins in August and runs through February 2022. It is specifically for young ladies who will be high school juniors and seniors. Once the program is completed in February, the accomplishments of these young ladies are celebrated in a spectacular way during an elegant Debutante Cotillion.

The Pearls of Perfection Debutante program is comprised of four key principles. They are:

  • Scholarship – including scholastic achievement and the value of continuing education at the post-secondary level through scholarship awards,
  • Service – the importance of giving back to their communities through individual and group community service projects,
  • Leadership Skills – participants can network and learn from professionals while absorbing educational development and college preparedness,
  • Personal Development – through a series of workshops, cultural events and rehearsals, participants will learn etiquette and social graces, and will enhance their personal growth.

Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. is an organization of college-educated women committed to constructive development of its members and to public service. For more information please visit www.ccacdst.org.

Mia Bonta -- via Twitter

Congresswoman Barbara Lee, D-Oakland, endorsed Mia Bonta for East Bay Assembly District 18, which includes the cities of Oakland, Alameda and San Leandro.

The special election is being held because seat was vacated by her husband, Rob Bonta, who was appointed California Attorney General by Gov. Gavin Newsom. The remainder of Rob Bonta’s assembly term is through 2022.

Lee tweeted “[l]et’s do this @MiaBonta! The Bay Area is lucky to have such a fierce progressive advocate.”

Bonta thanked Lee via Twitter for her support.

Lee also said of Bonta that she “ . . . will bring a progressive, social, economic and racial justice lens to our state legislature.”

“She will stand up for communities that have been marginalized and underrepresented for too long.  Mia is committed to addressing our community’s most pressing issues, such as homelessness, environmental justice, criminal justice reform, helping families and businesses recover from the pandemic, and reopening schools safely.  Mia has a strong record of serving East Bay children and families,” Lee said.

Mia Bonta is currently board president of the Alameda Unified School District.  She is also endorsed by U.S. Sen. Alex Padilla, Secretary of State Dr. Shirley Weber, Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, Oakland City Council members Sheng Thao, Loren Taylor and Treva Reid of districts 4, 6 and 7 respectively; California State Board of Equalization member Malia Cohen, Nate Miley and Keith Carson of Alameda County Board of Supervisors, District 7 BART Director Lateefah Simon; Oakland City Attorney Barbara Parker, Black Women for Political Action (BWOPA) and Equality California among others.

Bonta is running in a field with Mali Vella (who also received Schaaf’s endorsement), Janani Ramachandran, James Aguilar, Eugene Canson, Stephen Slauson, Joel Britton, and Victor Aguilar.

The special primary election is June 29 by mail-in ballot only with the general election set for August 31.
