Lacee Boyd – Alumni of the Month

Lacee Noel Boyd was born and raised in Pasadena, California. Lacee graduated from Pasadena High School in 2012 and continued her education at the Art Institute of North Hollywood. She was pursuing a Bachelor’s of Science in Culinary Management while still working full-time. She also attended Universal Technical Institute and took a few automotive and diesel courses. A few of her hobbies consists of cooking, hiking and occasionally stepping out to dance Latin music. Lacee is currently working for the City of Pasadena as the Lead Ambassador for our Youth Ambassadors program. She will continue her education in February 2018 in order to pursue a  business management degree.

Lacee says “Being able to be a part of such a great program for so many years and I say many because I have been a part of the program since I was 14 years of age, has honestly been the best opportunity to happen to me. Having entered the work field at such a young age was such a door opener for me because I have had the opportunity to meet some phenomenal and very important individuals who I am still very connected to today. Without the help and guidance of Lola and this program I would have had a harder time getting by as a teenager. I owe a big part of my growth and open mind to the Ambassadors program because we were so diverse with many different opinions and Lola taught us we could all succeed no matter the circumstances. This is where I made life-long friendships.”
