College Decision Day for PCHS First Generation Seniors

Typically, May 1st is College Decision Day and graduating seniors across the country would be celebrating their decisions for the fall. The COVID-19 crisis has thrown the Class of 2020 into uncharted territory, but one thing is certain; 23 first-generation PCHS seniors have every reason to be proud of their accomplishments. After years of hard work, these students have earned college acceptances across the state and beyond!

Each of these students went above and beyond by taking part in at least one of these programs:

1) Bright Futures college mentoring program for those first in their families to attend college, 10th grade through college graduation (funded by PCEF donors)

2) Latinos in Action leadership and volunteering class for Latinx students, 6th grade - 12th grade (funded by PCEF donors and PCSD)

3) Dream Big AP and ACT preparation class for those first in their families to attend college, 10th - 12th grade (funded by a grant from Utah State University)

Their hard work has paid off:
