Principals Take Image
I’m feeling extremely grateful for all of the wonderful people associated with SOAR! We have a tremendous partnership between the AVUHSD and AVC, plus such an amazing group of faculty and staff that put their hearts and souls into everything they do to make SOAR the best experience possible for students. Most of all, I’m thankful for the wonderful student body...our students are truly the reason we all continue to do the very important and meaningful work in this early college high school program.
Around this time of year, we get lots of alumni visits. It’s amazing to see all the life-changing opportunities and learning experiences our former students have taken advantage of after SOAR. Our community continues to live out its vision in that
SOAR Stars are life-long learners and self-advocates who solve the most pressing challenges through an unwavering pursuit of knowledge, innovation, and collaboration, becoming engaged and productive leaders in their communities.
I’m so proud of the hard work and progress of everyone this first semester...I encourage everyone to get some good rest over the Thanksgiving break, so that we can come back rejuvenated in order to finish strong this semester!
With a heart FULL of gratefulness...Happy Thanksgiving to all!
~ Dr. Herrera
