Students vie for memorial award

May 11, 2011|By Edna Karinski

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.

An open invitation to the community is extended by Janet Buhl, Verdugo Woodlands principal, for her school’s annual Open House of kindergarten through sixth-grade classrooms from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. May 26. Everyone is welcome — from family, friends and neighbors to incoming families or those considering Verdugo Woodlands but currently attending private schools. Each classroom will have displays of the projects that its students have completed. Early Extended Education Learning Programs Open House is from 6 to 6:30 p.m.

PTSA President Sydney Swainston reports that several Glendale High PTSA officers and members attended the recent California State PTA Convention in Long Beach where they learned tips on how to better execute their PTA offices and heard about new programs on the horizon. Swainston adds that this was an opportunity for them to network with more than 3,000 PTA members from across the state and nation, which equips the Glendale High PTSA to support the education, welfare and safety of our children. A Spring Choir Concert is scheduled for 7 p.m. May 24 in the auditorium, followed by an Instrumental Music Concert at 7 p.m. May 26 also in the auditorium.
