I want to take this time to do a "Student Spotlight" on our senior, Anna Cantu. She was recently accepted into the University of Texas at Austin E4 Program. This program was started in 2018 and provides a post-secondary experience for High School Graduates. This program was specifically created for diverse populations. Anna has yet to decide if she will accept this offer, however if she does it means that she will be moving to Austin to live in a dorm for a month during the summer, then she would begin training to become a personal care attendant.
Anna is still applying to other programs and is weighing them all equally, but I am so proud of her and wanted to share the news with everyone. I've known Anna since she was eight years old and being one of her teachers over these last ten years has been remarkable. She has amazed me on several occasions and challenged me on several others. I am so happy for her and could not be prouder of the adult she is becoming. I feel blessed to have been a part of her youth and can't wait to see what she accomplishes in the future. Way to go, Anna!
