Out of the 16,000 students that NOCROP serves, 34 exceptional students were chosen to be honored at the intimate ceremony.

From Los Alamitos High School, 
two outstanding students were selected:

A note to Sophomores and Juniors:
You made it through another year of high school- congratulations! While we hope that you take time this summer to rest and relax, don't forget to use this as an opportunity to get a jump on your future plans! 
Here are a few ways you can prepare for the 2019-2020 school year, and beyond!

-Volunteer! (make sure to keep track of your hours and keep the supervisor's contact information)
-Research colleges that you may want to visit over Winter or Spring Breaks. Pick a few of your top schools, see what is required for admission and start a checklist to stay on track!
-Look into SAT or ACT practice work to prepare for the exams! (Khan Academy through College Board has free SAT prep! Khan Academy Link)
-If you are working, make sure to get a work permit processed. This can be done through the LAHS front office staff (who fro the summer break will be located at Oak Middle school).
-Prepare a resume and practice interview skills with a parent or mentor. This is great if you're looking for a job, or preparing for college or internship interviews!
