“Good afternoon … I am so happy to hear back from the Ladies of the Empire! I really appreciate all the support and love from this amazing community. The scholarship has helped me so much in my transition from Ohlone College to UC Berkeley with textbook and housing costs. I am able to work less and focus more on my studies.
My first semester at Cal was challenging but rewarding as I have met many amazing individuals and got involved with various activities and student organizations on campus, as well as finished strong in all my courses with a 3.67 gpa.  I was recently selected to become an ambassador for UC Berkeley for the University of California Global Health Institute for Women’s Health, Gender, and Empowerment in which I am helping raise awareness of global health and women’s rights issues on my campus.
My brother, Giovanni is following my path in attending Ohlone College and plans to transfer to a UC campus to study business. My younger brother, Josue, is still playing football for the Milpitas Trojans and is in his sophomore year. My family are all very proud of my accomplishments and their love is what is helping me stay focused on my studies and continuing to excel.
I once again am so grateful for all the LOTE has helped me with. I would love to be a part of the LOTE community by giving back or volunteering in events that you all will hold. Please let me know how I can contribute and give back to the LOTE family.
Thank you!”

Deserving Kids: Jordan L.

“Thank you for the 49ers tickets, I am glad that I got the experience to go to a football game. I really enjoyed myself while I was at the game. I got a souvenir, I got to see the 49ers in person, and I even got to see the cheerleaders dance. The game was really exciting, mostly because I got to see a lot of other 49er fans and they were cheering and also booing the other team! It was really fun!”

Thank you!

This time of year is exciting for the Faithful. We are ready to bring on new, fresh talent. Our hopes are high for a winning season. This year in particular is electrifying because of all of the changes in the front office. “Brick by brick” as they say.   I cannot wait for the regular season to start!

But allow me a few sentences to just whine a bit. By the time this newsletter is posted, we will know who is on our team. The elite 53 who will carry us a Superbowl! But who are they? Each summer, I invest time getting to know our new players and learning their numbers. It’s usually not an overwhelming amount of time because there’s a stable number of veterans that I’ve already studied and committed to memory. But this summer? My gosh! I’m unable to keep up! I feel like I have to get to know the whole entire team – and don’t even get me started on the coaching staff. When they released Ahmad Brooks, I couldn’t believe it. Are we going to have a new #55? Ugh, and the recirculated jersey numbers during preseason make me crazy. Controversy aside, can you even handle seeing a #7 out there that’s not Kaep? I.just.can’t. And stay away from #74, I don’t want to hear it. Let’s just keep him on the team or I will lose my mind.

Ok, that was more than a few sentences, but I really needed to vent. I know there are many reading this thinking “Change is good. We need change. A younger team, blah blah blah”. I agree with you but geesh, I’m glad there’s not a quiz on our new team.

More than anything, I remain hopeful. I am excited for our reinvented team, seeing the “brick by brick” philosophy come to life. Thanks for listening. Go 49ers!!
