Student Spotlight: Kaylie
The Juvenile Court and Community Schools (JCCS) student representative on the San Diego County Board of Education for May was Kaylie, a senior at San Pasqual Academy.
Principal David Sosa said that Kaylie keeps her grades strong while working part time and staying involved in the school community, serving as football manager and in other roles on campus.
“She has been an active and engaged member of our school community, consistently demonstrating perseverance and a strong work ethic,” he said. “She has emerged as a leader in both academic and extracurricular activities, inspiring her peers to follow in her footsteps.”
Kaylie has received several awards from her teachers, including the Thriving in Life award and Academic Excellence award. She hopes to study radiologic science and become a traveling MRI tech after graduating in June.
Her advice to other students: If you get tired, learn to rest and don’t quit.
“We are incredibly proud of her and wish her continued success in her future endeavors,” Sosa said.
Board Member Paulette Donnellon presented Kaylie with her award on behalf of the San Diego County Board of Education, which recognizes a student from JCCS at all of its regular meetings.
