LIFE Cohort recognized for achievement.


22 students from San Jacinto High School CTE Medical Assisting Pathway were recognized for completing 70-80 hours of LIFE internship at Hemet Valley Medical Center. Students families were invited to learn more about LIFE program, hear student testimonials, and watch their students receive certificates of completion. A surprise $5,000 educational award from the Guillermo J. Valenzuela Foundation was awarded to 10 students for outstanding performance. ($500 per student).
