Juan Aguilera
Juan is an eighth-grade student at Haven Drive Middle School in Arvin who has made a commitment to his school work after a slow start during the early part of his middle school years. He has raised his grades to the point that he got all A’s in the third quarter of this year. He works with his mentor, Nora Pacheco, to keep up with his homework, even coming in during his free time to work on his assignments. “Almost every time he wants to see me,” writes Nora, “It’s because he wants help with his homework.” He is now focused and self-directed. He works hard to sustain the academic progress he has accomplished and is intent on starting high school on a strong note and making honor roll when he gets there. His mentor adds, “I’m really proud of him, his improvement, and motivation he has had to reach his goals.”
