Twenty Oakland Unity High School 11th grade juniors are off to the Central Coast this week. They will visit University of California, Santa Barbara, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, and Hearst Castle. They will visit Unity alumni at both campuses. We hope that these important tours inspire our students.

Techbridge is pleased to share that Ana was honored at an award luncheon for young women for their computing-related achievements and interests. Twenty-five high school students received the Aspirations in Computing, Bay Area Affiliate Award, presented at a luncheon at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View. The Award package includes a $250 gift card, flip camera, and a day at Google. The event celebrated the girls’ achievements and provided an opportunity for the winners to network with role models from leading tech firms in the Bay Area.
We look forward to seeing what’s in store for Ana and expect that one day Ana and other Techbridge girls will be recognized for their achievements in the Computer History Museum.
The California Charter Schools Association is proud to award $1,500 college scholarships to five deserving charter high school graduates at Association member schools. The scholarship is named for Susan Steelman Bragato, the co-founder of the first charter school in California, a founder of this conference and the founder of the California Network of Educational Charters (which was renamed the California Charter Schools Association in 2003). Sue was one the first Californians to recognize the need to build a strong network of support among charter school leaders statewide. After battling breast cancer, Sue died in 2005. In honor of her unprecedented contribution to the charter school movement, the Association named this scholarship in her memory.
