December 23rd, 2008 by Temple City Tribune

Kiwanis Club of Temple City was pleased to have honored two outstanding students from the Dr. Doug Sears Learning Center Independent Study on December 16, 2008. Pictured with the proud students are teachers Mr. Andrew Jahan and Mrs. Yvonne Rivera, also new Principal Steve Edo.
Ian is 12 years old and in Mr. Jahan’s class. Ian has three brothers and sisters and enjoys writing books, doodling, creating board games, experiments and inventions. Ian said, “The best things about Independent Study is I have the best teachers, my work is fun, challenging and interesting, and I like the text books.” Personal goals are build a huge company called “Soaring Imagination Studios”, being more productive and helpful at home, finish his book and publish it, and play less video games. Ian’s parents and brother were also on hand to witness his honor.
Diego is 17 years old and in Mrs. Rivera’s class. Diego has a younger brother and sister and enjoys playing the guitar and drums. Diego said, “The best things about Independent Study are my friends, the education I receive, and preparation for life.” The best thing that ever happened was being accepted to Cal State Monterey Bay. Personal goals are to get accepted to all the colleges he applied to, get his drivers license and a job.12_16_08_ddslc
