Four Crescenta Valley High School students were honored by the Glendale Unified School District board of education on March 18. They were presented with the Character and Ethics Award for their outstanding service to the community. Award recipients were Anahid Baghdasarian, Ashlynn Fiss, Mathew Sutphin and Melanie Gaspar.
Each award recipient is recommended by a member of the Glendale community for demonstrating excellence in a certain category. The categories are respect, honesty, trustworthiness, loyalty, courtesy, self-discipline, integrity, fairness,
responsibility, cooperation, citizenship and compassion.
The four awardees are current seniors at Crescenta Valley High School and all a part of the Academy of Science and Medicine program at the school. They were honored for their service in establishing a program for CV students to tutor at-risk students of Rosemont Middle School at CV. Rosemont teacher Laura Rivera and CV teacher Orenda Tuason nominated the four individuals.
“It is a great to see students actually be recognized for all their hard work. We are extremely proud of our students and their collaboration towards the things they do,” said Tuason.
