Teach for America and One Goal at Davis
The co-CEO of Teach for America, Elisa Villanueva Beard, was a guest speaker in Ms. Garner's 4th period OneGoal college readiness class. Elisa, who attended a high school very similar to Davis in the Valley, was incredibly impressed with the students’ preparedness and participation in yesterday’s discussion about the path to college and beyond. She is a national education powerhouse and it is an honor that she chose Davis for her OneGoal visit. Next year, Shilpa Sarang will be leading a new cohort of 11th graders through the OneGoal program.

MBA Graduate Inspires
Manuel Rojas graduated from Davis in 2004. This Sunday, Manuel, 27, will participate in a commencement ceremony for UHD as one of the University’s first MBA graduates – and as a “father” figure and role model for his five siblings, whom he encouraged to follow in his footsteps to earn a college degree.
