The Kiwanis Club of Temple City honored Alvin Chen from the Dr. Doug Sears Learning Center. Pictured with the proud student is teacher, Mr. Andrew Jahan.
Alvin is 17 years old and in Mr. Rios’, Mr. Patterson’s, and Mr. Jahan’s class. He enjoys hiking and fishing, and he loves to dance and even demonstrated his skills. Alvin said, “The best things about the Learning Center is the reduced schedule, there is always enough time for teachers to help the students, and with a small school it is easier to make friends.” Personal goals are to have better physical health, go to Pasadena City College, go on a field trip to New York on May 24, and to get engaged.
Each week the Temple City Kiwanis Club is pleased to recognize outstanding students and their teachers from Cloverly, Emperor, Longden, Oak Avenue, 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, Mid Valley News, Temple City Tribune, and displayed in the Temple City Unified School District lobby.
