"Each graduate was presented with a special watch, donated by Mr. Gardella, as a memento for each student’s commitment to education, life-long learning and positive contribution to the community of Napa. Each watch was emblazoned on the back with “Legacy 2014 VHS” to remember their dedication to the Legacy program as well as their role as a founding member of Legacy." --via Napa Valley Register
