OCDE, Angels Baseball, and PYLUSD Board of Education Recognize AVID 8th Grade Standouts

AVID recognition at Board Meeting.

On May 7, the Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District (PYLUSD) Board of Education set aside time to recognize AVID 8th Grade Standouts from all six middle schools. The students’ teachers, counselors, principals, and loved ones were also in attendance to support.

“Each year, the AVID Standout Award is given to students who demonstrate excellence, collaboration, integrity, and service in their academic achievements and individual determination,” Assistant Superintendent of Educational Services, Dr. Olivia Yaung, shared. “These six students are being recognized for their high GPA, community service, and involvement in leadership and extracurricular activities. Many hours of dedication and hard work are behind these students’ accomplishments. This recognition represents the determination, perseverance, and commitment each student has demonstrated toward their education.”

Then on May 8, all six AVID Standouts were recognized by the Orange County Department of Education at Angel Stadium of Anaheim.

Kraemer Middle School student, Melanie Rebollar-Lua, was one of just six students selected by the Angels Foundation as an Angels Scholar. Melanie will receive a $10,000 renewable scholarship for college in addition to the Angels tickets, Angels gear, and a brand new laptop that all standouts received.

Here is the list of this year’s PYLUSD AVID Standout Students:

Bernardo Yorba Middle School – Miranda Perez
Kraemer Middle School – Melanie Rebollar-Lua
Travis Ranch Middle School – Annora Doty
Tuffree Middle School – Isabel Kieczykowski
Valadez Middle School Academy – Daniel Juarez

AVID, short for ‘Advancement Via Individual Determination, is a non-profit organization that supports students by helping schools shift to a more equitable, student-centered approach. The program’s mission is to close the opportunity gap by preparing all students for college and career readiness and success in our global society.OCDE, Angels Baseball, and PYLUSD Board of Education all recognize AVID 8th Grade Standouts
