Juniors Pamela Lozano and Cynthia Montalvo have been named LEAP (Latino/a Educational Achievement Project) Ambassadors for the 2016-2017 school year.

LEAP was founded in 1998. Its mission is to improve academic achievement of Latino/a students in Washington state. The goal is for all students to graduate from high school with the skills, knowledge and confidence needed for success in postsecondary education or in today's information age and technology-driven workplace.

“The application process is tough, and only a few students get selected for this position from throughout the state, let alone two from the same high school,” Intervention Specialist Melito Ramirez said.

“The students selected are extremely excited and are ready to put in the commitment and hard work that it takes to represent this side of the state in Olympia.”

The students will attend a kickoff event in Seattle in June and then participate in the week-long Ambassadors Retreat in July to begin enhancing their leadership skills.
