The program is under the direction and supervision of Ms. Micki Clowney and assisted by Ms. Angel Orta-Perez. The presentation will provide a summary of the program's partnership with the Moreno Valley Unified School District and the cohort of 60 students from Vista Del Lago High School. The presentation will review highlights of various components of the program, which includes its purpose, services, benefits, academic performance, etc.
