As if graduating from high school wasn’t an exciting enough accomplishment, seniors from three eastside-area charter high schools last Saturday, June 8, also earned the distinction of being the first graduating class for their schools: Alliance Environmental Science and Technology High School, Alliance Tennenbaum Family Technology High School and Alliance Media Arts & Entertainment Design High School.

According to Communications Director California Charter Schools Association Sierra Jenkins, a local standout is Daniel Amaya, a student at Alliance Environmental Science and Technology High School, who became one of just 1,000 students in the country to receive the prestigious Gates Millennium Scholarship. The scholarship is a full-ride for selected high-achieving, low-income students at the university of their choice.
