League President Adena Ishii recently spoke at the celebration of 50 years of public service at the University of California, Berkeley. in an article in the on-line Berkeley News, UC’s Will Kane wrote:
When Adena Ishii, 27, was a student volunteering at UC Berkeley’s Public Service Center, she started a program to help students transferring from community colleges adjust to life on Berkeley’s big campus. Three years after graduating, she’s still doing the same work.

Ishii, a 2014 graduate who majored in business administration, was one of dozens of Berkeley graduates who gathered to honor the university’s commitment to public service.
