Students Connect with Global Executives
SAN PEDRO — On March 27, the International Trade Education Programs will honor 23 student scholars from six Southern California high schools at its 14th Annual Scholarship Dinner, themed “Crafting Future Careers,” on March 27, 2014 at Crafted at the Port Los Angeles in San Pedro.
More than 400 global and civic leaders representing some 100 major companies and organizations join 270 students to showcase the yearly achievements from 2,200+ students in International Trade Education Programs academies from Barstow, Carson, Gardena, Long Beach, and San Pedro High Schools, plus four at Wilmington’s Phineas Banning High School.
The annual, sold-out event will also recognize special student achievements. Phineas Banning High School student Jasmine Valdez will receive the year’s memorable Carol Rowen 180 Degree Award for her dramatic turn-around from a 1.5 GPA to a college-bound student and academy council member. In addition, the newly established Martin D. Chavez Scholarship Fund will present its second annual awards to six International Trade Education Programs students.
Other scholarships include awards from the Los Angeles Air Cargo Association, the Foreign Trade Association and the Harbor Association of Industry and Commerce. (more…)Read More
