Valencia hosts AVID barbecue tailgate

On Thursday, Sept. 24, Valencia High School hosted their first annual AVID barbecue tailgate party for over 500 VHS, Kraemer Middle School and Valadez Middle School Academy AVID students, families and staff members before their home football game against Troy High School.

The purpose of the tailgate was to build upon the connection between the three AVID programs, and motivate these students to stay focused on their goal of attending a college or university after Valencia.

AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) is a global nonprofit organization dedicated to closing the achievement gap by preparing all students for college and other postsecondary opportunities, especially those traditionally underrepresented in higher education.

The VHS Tigers went on to beat Troy Warriors 28-14!
