Message from John Campbell

The reason public education exists is to prepare students to take their places in society, as competent, productive members. As trustees of that worthy goal, educators strive to produce excellence in every student's academic life. New emphasis from state and federal government has not changed that original goal. Instead, it has sharpened our focus on the need to make sure everything we teach, everything we spend, and everything we model, leads to improved student achievement....

Grant Middle School Student Awarded Jr. Giants Scholarship

Celebrations

Adan Carranza, a Grant 8th grader, was recently awarded a San Francisco Jr. Giants scholarship. Since 2002, the Giants Community Fund has inducted 10 8th-grade students per year into the Harmon & Sue Burns Scholarship Program. Adan joins the ranks of a select few who have been given this award. He is the first student from Reedley to receive the scholarship and is the only honoree from the Central Valley this year. Rosa Hernandez, 8th grade T.L. Reed teacher and Jr. Giants Literacy Coordinator met Adan several years ago when he first participated in the Jr. Giants summer baseball program. Rosa assisted Adan with the application process that included discussing future plans and obtaining a letter of recommendation. Adan plans to become a Public Defender in the future. He is looking forward to taking criminology and public speaking classes in high school and hopes to attend Fresno State. Through the scholarship program, Adan will attend virtual in-service meetings and complete 30 hours of community service each year. Adan said that he is already working on his service hours and plans to help with the Jr. Giants program this summer as well as volunteer at his church and in the community. Adan, along with the other honorees, was recognized at a San Francisco Giants game earlier this year. Once he graduates from high school, Adan will return to the Giants baseball diamond where he will receive the $5,000 scholarship and a custom jersey with his name on it.
