President Bush on Tuesday named Savvy, a volunteer group from Century High School, as the 353rd "Daily Point of Light." The group, founded in 1982 by Century High School teacher Shirley Bebereia, was recognized by the President for helping to provide poverty-stricken pupils with basic necessities of life and for encouraging their peers to serve the community, according to a White House press release. Savvy, which stands for Santa Ana Volunteer Youth, has more than 150 members.

Woodbridge High's Stephanie Genovese views it this way: "I really think the atmosphere of teen-agers is changing." "Kids have a lot of social concern," said the 18-year-old senior. "A lot of it was triggered by distress over the environment. All of us were recycling before it was mandatory in Irvine. But what also triggered it was not the hardship of our planet, but the hardship of people. We started recognizing that there are a lot of charities that need help."

It was Trang Le's first visit to a nursing home, and the 17-year-old was a bit nervous as she clutched the yellow balloons she carried as gifts of cheer for the residents. Le entered a room and saw a woman lying in bed who couldn't speak, but whose eyes lit up at the sight of the high school junior. Le took the frail woman's hand and smiled before tying the balloons to the bed frame. Although she remained cheerful throughout the visit, Le couldn't hold back her tears afterward.

What if the current crop of suburban high school students, reared largely by "turbulent '60s" parents during the "go-for-it" '80s, turned out cynical and world-weary at the ripe old age of 17? Happily, a Times Orange County Edition questionnaire that informally polled attitudes of high school seniors suggests that this is not happening.

Century High School teacher Shirley Bebereia was honored last week with the Giraffe Award, an honor bestowed five times a year to Santa Ana Unified School District employees who "stick their neck out for education." "If we could clone Shirley, it would be an unbelievable world," said school board President Sal Mendoza. "Santa Ana students are lucky to have a teacher who is making such a difference in our society."

Hillary Clinton returned Thursday to the turf that gave her husband's presidential campaign an unlikely boost last year, shuttling into Orange County to spread her gospel of renewed family values, women's rights and support for children. The wife of presidential hopeful Bill Clinton talked with teen-agers at a Santa Ana high school and spoke at a $100-a-plate political fund-raiser, repeatedly stressing that she wants to be a "voice for children" in America.

Frugality seems to be the byword. Whether they've lost their jobs and had to tap their savings to stay afloat or have simply trade dinner and a movie out for staying home with a pizza and videos, many Orange County families are being forced by the recession to downscale their lifestyles.

The spirit of sharing hits a frenzy of goodwill during the holiday season. People in Southern California are coming together in many different ways and places to spread holiday cheer. Christians and non-Christians, ordinary folks and celebrities are working to build a renewed sense of community. It's that time of year when the walls that too many of us have built around ourselves can come down a little. Let's face it.
