Richel Cole addresses State HouseMark

Mark and Richel Cole
I invited Richel Cole, a senior at Sacred Hearts Academy to present the opening invocation to the State of Hawaii House of Representatives on March 16, 2011.  Mark met Richel when she delivered a keynote address at a conference sponsored by Enterprise Honolulu this past summer.

Richel told a story about how she was spurred into action by a young girl who did not think that she could go to college.  Taking the initiative, Richel founded the YWCA Youth Network that now provides encouragement young women to continue their education beyond high school.
