JCCS Student Spotlight: Ke'Shawn

JCCS Student Spotlight: Ke'Shawn

The Juvenile Court and Community School student representative on the San Diego County Board of Education for November was Ke’Shawn, a senior at San Pasqual Academy (SPA).

Ke’Shawn came to SPA behind in credits but worked with counselor Chris Toomey to develop and execute a plan that would put him on track to graduate. Because of his tenaciousness, he is planning to graduate in June and attend Palomar College to pursue his interest in being an auto mechanic.

According to Toomey, Ke’Shawn is an versatile athlete, excelling in football, basketball, and track. He is humble and lets his actions demonstrate his abilities. 

Ke’Shawn encourages other students to not to be afraid to lead. He credits his teacher Donald Jackson, Coach Andrew Serrano, and Toomey with helping him get through some tough times and always encouraging him to do the right thing. 

Board Member Paulette Donnellon introduced Ke’Shawn at the board of education meeting and said she looked forward to seeing him play in a basketball game this season.

Each month, the San Diego County Board of Education recognizes a student from Juvenile Court and Community Schools at its regular meeting.
