The California School Employees Association and the Nuñez Community Foundation presented Milpitas Unified School District with welcomed donations to several programs offered at each of its high schools to open the November 12 Board of Education meeting.
After advocating to her Board of Directors, CSEA President Machelle Kessinger issued a $500 donation to Milpitas High School Assistant Principal Cheryl Rivera for the school’s continued participation in Camp Everytown.
“I’ve witnessed the students going to Camp Everytown and coming back. To me, I can see just a transformation,” said Kessinger during the presentation.
About 1,600 students at Milpitas High School have attended Camp Everytown over the years, with a group of 40 hand-selected each term, according to Rivera.
