We have cause for great celebration! One of our own, Da Vinci Senior and Valedictorian, Jesus Olivares was selected to be featured on the weekly Channel 7 Community Champion segment! The segment, which aired on Wednesday, May 13th on the 7 P.M. and 10 P.M. newscasts, featured Jesse’s extraordinary opportunity of being selected as a Gates Scholar, one of only 300 in the nation, being accepted into Stanford University’s School of Engineering on a $320,000 scholarship, as well as his other noteworthy accomplishments while at Da Vinci School for Science and the Arts!
“The path to success is not easy, it is the sum of many efforts, however, reaching your goals is possible taking advantage of the opportunities offered at this school district. Initiatives like the Superintendent’s Leadership Academy prompt students to aim high and strive to reach their dreams.” – Jesus Olivares; Valedictorian, Class of 2020
As a Senior Intern for Superintendent, Dr. G., Jesse has evolved into quite the leader and academic scholar, serving as a prime example of what the Superintendent’s Leadership Program and high-rigor curriculum sets out to accomplish with all Burnham Wood Family of Charter Schools’ students. Congratulations Jesse!
