“I had the opportunity to learn about many of the nonprofits in Los Alamos who are responsible for our vast support network and activities around town,” Waldschmidt said. “I can now be more selective in matching my passions with improving the lives of locals in Los Alamos through community service. I would encourage anyone interested in taking a leadership role in the community to apply for Leadership Los Alamos. I would also like to thank Del Norte Credit Union for sponsoring me in the program and for helping me further my knowledge.”
