Hesperia Star — One word sums it up for Sultana High School AVID Coordinator Wayne Elliott and two students turned tutors, Sandra Bahena and Leonard Lamp, and their 10-year involvement in the Advancement Via Individual Determination elective: dedication.
Bahena and Lamp, both 22, graduated on June 16 with bachelor of arts degrees in math from California State University, San Bernardino. They had joined AVID at Ranchero Middle School in 2003 and continued on with the program at Sultana High School as students until their graduation in 2009 when they were hired on as tutors.
Their 10-year journey with AVID will end this year. Lamp and Bahena said they would put their focus on obtaining their master’s degrees at CSUSB.
