Trustees honor Cal Hills' students who participated in Relay for Life April 28-29

Superintendent Cheryl Jordan and the Board of Education recognized Cal Hills' students who participated in Relay for Life April 28-29 in Santa Clara. Student Kalmintas Kupciunas accepted the certificates on his teammates behalf. He was pictured alongside teacher Sridaya Mandyam-Komar and Assistant Principal Karisa Scott in addition to teachers Tabitha Kappeler-Hurley and Dr. Kimi Schmidt, who were able to be present through a remote video conference teacher.

"What was really exciting about this Relay for Life is that our Cal Hills kids are seen as leaders," Jordan said.

The "Cal-Hills Mustangs" group raised $4,397.73 to date - with a goal of $4,000 - for the 24 hour walking event that raises money and awareness about cancer prevention, research, and services through the American Cancer Society.
