CaSN Radio: Scholarships Reward High Achieving Students

Pioneer High Principal Lilia Bozigian and AVID tutors Jennifer DeBaca Sandoval and Dyan Acevedo join scholarship winner Ana Cortez to discuss Whittier Union's commitment to first-generation students and Pioneer’s designation as an AVID National Demonstration School on California School News Radio!
In April, Cortez received $60,000 in scholarships from Southern California Edison and the Michael and Susan Dell Foundation.
Cortez credits the college-prep program Advancement Via Individual Determination, or AVID, for helping her to acquire the skills to pursue higher education.
