The five each received a $200 scholarship from the Glendale Scholarship Endowment Tuesday at the Glendale Unified School District board of education awards presentation.

As Ernestine Moore, the district director for State Sen. Jack Scott, toured Daily High School and other Glendale Unified School District schools on Thursday, she was impressed by the extent to which the school district caters to the needs of specific groups of students. She visited AdvancePath Academy, a program for students who are in danger of dropping out of high school, and Verdugo Academy, an independent study program for students who can’t attend high school during traditional daytime hours.
