On a daily basis we see reports of young people in trouble, or showing signs of going in that direction.
On April 23, at Madera South High School, a large section of the cafeteria was full of students who have worked hard in academia and many other commitments in preparation for college.
I didn’t choose our recipients because of low income or how many dependants in the family, but because of their individual efforts. How in the world they even have time for all they accomplished is beyond me.
There are only so many hours in a day. When did they sleep?
There was encouragement for the students to return to this community and serve.
All of us and our future population would definitely benefit from the students coming out of the high schools of MUSD. The following GPAs are from the five we chose: 4.62, 4.29, 4.45, 4.21 4.35.
Can you imagine these kinds of GPA’s? AP calculus; honors physics; economics, etc.
I didn’t see a representative from The Tribune, but hopefully, someone will be present On April 29 at Madera High when scholarships again will honor our wonderful students who are determined to do their best, and accomplish their goals. Maybe all from both high schools will have their names printed in our community newspaper.
We also hear how our educational system has failed our children. I know personally of many, many good teachers and principles in our local schools and how they truly care for the students and work hard to see them achieve.
Go students, go teachers!
