Celina Alvarez received the Rotary Club of Davis’ “Have a Heart for Children” award at the club’s recent Big Night fundraiser for its Child Abuse Prevention Program. Alvarez has worked at the Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Center for Yolo County for several years and is responsible for the care and nurturing of the children who arrive at the crisis shelter with a parent.

“Her dedication to the children has earned her the respect of her employer and the love of the children,” Rotary spokesman Bud Wolf said.

Other awards presented at the Feb. 9 fundraiser at the El Macero Country Club were $5,000 to the Yolo Crisis Nursery, $5,000 to the Yolo County Multidisciplinary Interview Center, $5,000 to SADVC and $2,000 to the Family Resource Center.

An estimated 170 people attended the event, which netted $33,000 for the club’s child abuse prevention efforts.

The Rotary Club of Davis meets at noon most Mondays at the Davis Community Church Fellowship Hall, 421 D St. in downtown Davis. For more information, contact membership chairman Andrew Dowling at andrewdowling@comcast.net or visit www.rotaryclubofdavis.com.

Two UC Davis students and one Dixon native have been selected as White House interns for the spring. The mission of the program is to make the White House accessible to future leaders around the nation and to prepare those devoted to public service for future leadership opportunities.

The new interns are Samantha Lower of Dixon, who attends UC Irvine; Nadia Mulji of Los Angeles, an undergraduate at UCD; and Miles Prince of San Gabriel, a student at the King Hall School of Law at UCD.

A White House internship provides an opportunity to gain valuable professional experience and build leadership skills. Interns work in one of several White House departments, including the Domestic Policy Council, the National Economic Council, the Office of Cabinet Affairs, the Office of Chief of Staff, the Office of Communications, the Office of Digital Strategy, the Office of the First Lady, the Office of Legislative Affairs, the Office of Management and Administration, the Office of Presidential Correspondence, the Office of Presidential Personnel, the Office of Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs, the Office of Scheduling and Advance, the Office of the Vice President, the Office of the White House Counsel and the Office of White House Fellows.

Katy Tang has been enmeshed in the life of San Francisco’s Sunset District since she was 1 year old. Now she will represent it.

San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee has named Tang, a 29-year-old UC Davis graduate and the longtime legislative aide to outgoing Supervisor Carmen Chu, to replace her mentor as the District 4 representative on the Board of Supervisors.

“The residents there have said, ‘Can we have continuity? We want to get a lot of things done,’ ” Lee said Tuesday (Feb. 26), lauding Tang as “someone who knows, already, the workings of City Hall.”

Tang was greeted with thunderous applause from a packed room of City Hall staffers and others as she walked with the mayor into the foyer of his office for the announcement.

“This is a very bittersweet moment for me,” Tang said with her parents and Chu standing at her side. “I am so honored to be able to serve on the Board of Supervisors and represent the district that I grew up in. But on the other hand … I am incredibly sad to see Supervisor Chu leave as my supervisor.”

Speculation had been swirling for months that there would be an opening to represent the district, which includes the Sunset and Parkside neighborhoods, after Assessor-Recorder Phil Ting announced he would run for Assembly. Many saw the fiscally minded Chu as Ting’s natural successor.

Lee announced this month that he would appoint Chu to that job and gave himself a deadline of March 4 to find her replacement.

Tang, as supervisor, and Chu, as assessor, were sworn in to their new jobs on Feb. 27. Both will face elections in November to hold their appointed posts, unless a special election is called sooner for another purpose.

Tang is a product of San Francisco public schools, a Lowell High School graduate, and earned bachelor’s degrees in political science and history from UCD, where she graduated in just three years.
