Saugus Junior to Attend Prestigious Summer Institute
Congratulations to Saugus High School junior Alex Petrovich, who will attend the Stanford University Junior Statesmen summer school program for outstanding high school students June 28 through July 19.

Admission for the program was extremely competitive with acceptance decisions based on academic achievement, leadership ability, maturity and interest in politics, history and government. Alex says she is looking forward to the challenges and opportunities the experience will bring.

Dental Assisting Class Graduation
Eighteen students received their certificates of completion and their valuable X-ray certification upon completion of the Hart District Regional Occupational Program's Dental Assisting class.

The full year course offers training in instruments used by dentists, sterilization techniques and working on patients, including on-the-job training in local dental offices.

Goal of the program is to prepare students to work as chairside dental assistants and, in some cases, to pursue even higher training in the field.

Wildcat, Grizzly Students Honored
West Ranch High School senior Joshua Chocooj and Golden Valley High School senior Angelica Martinez have received Student of the Month awards from Lockheed Federal Credit Union this spring.

The winners were selected because of overall performance, including academic accomplishments, extracurricular activities and leadership abilities.

Both students received a $250 scholarship from the credit union for their achievements.

Chocooj was the director and producer of West Ranch TV, a peer mediator for general education students and a peer mentor for students with Asperger's syndrome. He hopes to become an elementary teacher and, eventually, a counselor.

Martinez was a member of Golden Valley Renaissance, a student-run group that recognizes student and staff achievements, and was one of the school's top 10 seniors, with a grade point average of 4.25. She also volunteers in the community.
