Ezra served as keynote for our 7th Annual Summer Institute for After School Program staff in Region 6. The region is comprised of five central California counties: Stanislaus, San Joaquin, Calaveras, Amador & Tuolumne. Some of the participant responses to his keynote were statements such as - "Great motivator" and "Ezra is a great speaker and leader." Another comment made by participants, "Ezra Holland was awesome - Please bring him back next year!" Due to an overwhelmingly positive response by participants we brought him back to facilitate staff training in the spring of that same year."
