Kiwanis Honors Dr. Doug Sears Learning Center Students Kristie Lovelis and Arnulfo Cruz
February 17, 2009
Kiwanis Club of Temple City was pleased to have honored two outstanding students from the Dr. Doug Sears Learning Center on February 17, 2009. Pictured with the proud students is DDSLC Principal Stephen Edo and teacher Reggie Rios. Both students are in Mr. Rios’, Mrs. Billings’, and Mr. Pattersons’ classes
Kristie is 16 years old, has an older brother and sister and enjoys volleyball and cheer. Kristie said, “The best things about school are working at my own pace, good teachers that help, and the great hours”. The best thing that ever happened was getting a free slurpee at 7-11 because her birthday was 07-11. Personal goals are to improve her self confidence, build a human sling shot, catch up on her credits, go back to Temple City High School, and to graduate with her original class.
Arnulfo is 17 years old, has a younger sister and enjoys playing basketball and football. Arnulfo said, “The best things about school are most of my close friends are at the DDSLC, the teachers are helpful, and getting a break so I can play basketball”. The best thing that ever happened was getting a chance to play with professional basketball players in Mexico. Personal goals are to go back to Temple City High School, play basketball there, and to go to college.
Each week the Temple City Kiwanis Club is pleased to recognize outstanding students and their teachers from Cloverly, Emperor, Longden, and the Dr. Doug Sears Learning Center. Kiwanis treats students and their teacher to lunch. Students receive a certificate, a letter for their parents, a bumper sticker, a gift certificate from The Hat Restaurant, and a photograph of them receiving their award. Their photo will also be published in Temple City Life, Temple City Tribune, Mid Valley News, and displayed in the Temple City Unified School District lobby.
