Power Lunch Continues to Earn Accolades  

            On October 19, 2011 at the County Quality and Productivity Commission’s 25th Annual Awards Luncheon the Los Angeles Superior Court’s Power Lunch Program was honored with the County Image Enhancement Award for promoting a positive image of County employees. WLALA was recognized as a cooperating entity that funds the program through grants and donations and assists with administration. WLALA Members, Hon. Beverly Reid O’Connell, Hon. Nicole Bershon and Hon. Samantha Jessner, WLALA Immediate Past President, Angela S. Haskins, and WLALA Executive Administrator, Kay Burt, were present with LASC Administrators, Marlow P. Gory, Sylvia White-Irby, Mary Hearn and Camilo Cruz, to accept this prestigious award which was presented by Mayor Michael D. Antonovich, CEO William T. Fujioka and Commissioner William A. Sullivan. To view the presentation video please CLICK HERE and go to 2011 Productivity and Quality Awards and click on the County Image Enhancement Award at the bottom of the screen.
            The Power Lunch Program provides meaningful education about the justice system to high school students and LAPD Cadets while “planting a legal seed” in the minds of these impressionable young people. Power Lunch is designed to expand the career consciousness of the economically depressed young people in the County of Los Angeles. Power Lunches are now being held throughout the County of Los Angeles and thanks to an additional grant from the Judicate West Foundation as well as private donations it will continue strong into 2012. To become involved in this rewarding and meaningful program please contact Kay Burt at and keep an eye on the WLALA calendar for the next Power Lunch near you!
