Los Altos resident and U.S. Army veteran Ivan Temes teamed with former Air Force combat flier Graciela Tiscareno-Sato to present an interactive session on “Leading with Confidence” at the Oct. 8 Student Veteran Leadership Conference at the College of San Mateo.
The White House honored Tiscareno-Sato in 2014 for her work as a woman veteran. She publishes books in English and Spanish to educate youth about the challenges women in the military face.
Temes, an East Palo Alto Rotarian, does extensive pro bono work with youth.
His young group from Street Code Academy in East Palo Alto recently won first prize competing against adults at the Stanford TechFest.
