AVID Seniors awarded $221,664 in scholarships!

This year's Valencia AVID Senior Standout was Jennifer Avellaneda. According to her AVID teacher, Brandon Frank, Jennifer embodies the spirit of AVID. Her individual determination manifested in incredible grades in the most rigorous courses available. She also participated in yearbook, dance, and orchestra while maintaining academic excellence and personal integrity throughout her years at Valencia. She has overcome unimaginable tragedy in her life, but through her perseverance and humility she has come to be seen by her entire AVID family as a true standout. Jennifer is still deciding between UC Riverside and the Honors Program at CSU Fullerton in the fall. In addition to being honored as this year's Senior Standout, Jennifer received an AVID Kingston Technology Scholarship of $5,000, renewable each year.
Other seniors awarded with scholarships included Ises Segura, Angels Scholar, who received $4,000; Jennifer Gonzalez, AVID Kingston Technology Scholarship of $5,000, renewable each year, and Hope International University Scholarship of $20,416, renewable each year; as well as Karen Camacho and Raul Vera, Hope International University Scholarship of $12,000, renewable each year.
Valencia is proud of all their AVID tigers and wish them well as they pursue their post-secondary education in the fall
