Introduced by principal Brian Crain, and guided by teacher Emily Wilcox, students Cindy Borja, Caleb Patrick, Aaron Resendez, Anna Reddick, Aaliyah Trujillo, Daphne Moses and Katelyn Frank each talked about an aspect of the curriculum.  The students also asked board members to share experiences connected with courage, honor and respect, which are upcoming themes of the program.
