OPUS Camper Calvin Chu in the News

Spotlight-NAP-101214I am touched by Calvin Chu’s story recently published on the Naperville Sun.  Calvin is a 17 year old student at Waubonsie Valley High School.  He plays the violin, is one of our OPUS campers and has participated in many OPUS organized community concerts. He got into this academic spotlight because he won 1st place of an essay contest.  I am impressed that he organized a benefit concert and how he described how we do things for the right cause:

“Purpose-driven leaders unite individuals with like-minded peers, and set them on the right path by helping them find their own unique strengths, allowing them to fully devote themselves to a unified cause.”

Last year Calvin organized a benefit concert that included various local student musicians, raising funds for the Red Cross following Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.  He also helped found a UNICEF chapter at Waubonsee to unite students who expressed an interest in “making an impact in the lives of other children around the world.” Read Calvin’s story…
