Mountain View High School senior Melissa Valenzuela has been awarded a $500 Los Angeles County Bilingual Director’s Association Scholarship. The Association, which is comprised of bilingual directors from school districts throughout Los Angeles County, annually awards scholarships to high school bilingual seniors who will be pursuing a college education in the field of bilingual education, teaching or counseling and to bilingual classified personnel enrolled in or planning to enroll in courses leading towards a teaching credential in bilingual education.
Valenzuela has been a member of the Mountain View High School Teacher Preparation Academy for the past three years. She is an AP student and has been accepted to several colleges.
Recently, Valenzuela, along with other Teacher Preparation Academy students, participated in the Dr. Seuss Read Aloud Week by performing a play for students from local elementary schools.
“We congratulate Melissa on her scholarship and wish her the best in her future endeavors,” said Principal Keith Wheeler.
