Summer is here! As the end of the 2017/2018 school year came to a close last month – lockers cleared, exams done, grades posted and proms held – the Linked Learning Alliance was privileged to be part of some very special Senior celebrations!
What an honor it was to award the 2018 Linked Learning Scholarship to five outstanding students from across California, and to offer financial support for them to pursue their post-secondary dreams. I hope you will join us in congratulating each one of these amazing young people for their hard work, persistence and dedication. May they continue to thrive and blossom into the future leaders of California and beyond!
