Some local students will be in the spotlight today, March 13, as they receive recognition through the Association of School Administrator’s (ACSA’s) “Every Student Succeeding” program.
The program honors students who have succeeded against challenges, gone beyond expectations, or simply won the hearts of their teachers and other staff. Local honorees are Melissa Garcia from Riverbank High School and Ana Zepeda of Valley Home School.
This marks the eighth consecutive year that the Stanislaus ACSA Charter, the Stanislaus County Office of Education (SCOE), Mocse Credit Union and E. & J. Gallo Winery have honored selected students. Slated this year was a breakfast meeting, 7 a.m., at the Petersen Event Center in Modesto on Wednesday, March 13.
Educators and community members were slated to attend the breakfast, with a total of 23 students from throughout the county selected for this year’s honors. Of the 23 honorees, one will receive a $500 scholarship and will go on to represent the Charter in the ACSA regional program. The student selected to represent the region will also be recognized at the state level. Students from 15 school districts were slated to be honored.
Along with Garcia and Zepeda, the list also included three students from Ceres Unified School District, one from Empire, one each from Hickman, Hughson and Keyes, four from the Modesto City Schools District, one from Newman-Crows Landing, two from Patterson, one from the PACE program through the county, one from Stanislaus Union and one from Sylvan Union, three from Turlock Unified School District and one from Waterford.
