Glendale High School academics and leadership shine at the 46th annual Pat Navolanic Memorial Award assembly June 1 spotlighting 2011 finalists Jeff Asano, Justin Belen, Alan Ghazarians, Ani Ghazikhanian and Ji Su Yoo.
Glendale High student Pat Navolanic passed away at the age of 20, but not before leaving a trail of accomplishments. Today, the memorial award has become the most prestigious honor bestowed on a Glendale High senior and encourages a higher level of achievement in leadership, academics, community service and athletics. The school’s goal is that this award will stimulate students to emulate the qualities of character that made Pat Navolanic such an outstanding student and leader.
