Bill Loring Leah Tirado "Aaron, and the CIVIC, took a chance on me. I don’t know if he knew that he was giving me a second chance at life. I don’t know if he knew he was giving me this opportunity to continue to create." Leah Tirado Connie Chalko “I was very lonely. I didn't have friends. I was bullied and failing every class.
