Robert Chacon It was down, but not out. And the confidence the Hoover High School Scholastic Bowl team showed Monday night helped it take home the High School Scholastic Bowl title. Hoover did not let a first-round deficit get in its way, coming from behind to win the 14th annual event at Glendale High School. Hoover finished with 72 points, Glendale followed with 66 points, Clark Magnet, which struggled for most of the competition, recorded 57 points and three-time defending champion Crescenta Valley High School came in last with 55 points.

Thank you to the News-Press for its excellent coverage of local school events, including the March 14 coverage of the Glendale Unified School District Scholastic Bowl. Unfortunately, that story had one important piece of information missing: Although officially listed as an alternate member for the Crescenta Valley team, sophomore Justin Kim did participate actively in practices, the essay contest and the quiz portion of the competition. His points counted in the team's victory, and he is one of the many exceptional kids in our school district that deserve recognition.

Students at Hoover High School raked in $196,000 Monday. How? Almost 200 of them received the Governor's Scholarship for scores received in the Standardized Testing and Reporting exams. Students who scored in the top 5% of the state's public high schools or the top 10% of their high school were eligible for a $1,000 award, and 196 Hoover students received the honor this year. The students were recognized -- along with peers who had accomplished similar achievements -- at an academic rally at the school.

Robert Chacon A slew of student events in the Glendale Unified School District have been spared from the budget ax as financial support from community organizations continues to pour in. The latest figure, which will be announced at Tuesday's School Board meeting, totals more than $17,700. The district cut about $7 million from its operating budget for the upcoming school year because of the state's fiscal crisis, and about $40,000 from its special events budget.

One of Glendale Unified School District's three National Merit Scholarship Finalists speaks English as a third language. One is a homecoming princess and a drama queen. The third competes on the tennis court and in academic quizzes. Mkrtich Ohanyan of Clark Magnet High School, Polet Bagatourian of Crescenta Valley High School and Andrew Bagwell of Hoover High School all seniors, all received the honor making them eligible for $1,000 scholarships. Only about 15,000 students of the 1.3 million who apply for the scholarship program are named finalists by the nonprofit Illinois-based National Merit Scholarship Corp.

Gary Moskowitz A recent $10,000 donation was enough to prevent three school district events from getting canceled this school year because of budget cuts, school officials said Friday. Steve Bussjaeger and Charlie Gill presented the $10,000 donation to the Board of Education at a recent board meeting. Bussjaeger is a member of the Greater Los Angeles New Car Dealers Assn. and president of Star Auto Group in Glendale. Gill is the association's executive director.

I am a student of Hoover High School. I am writing this letter because I do not understand why the young man stabbed in front of Toll Middle School had to be called a "17-year-old student" and not a 17-year-old boy, or a 17-year-old young man. Calling him a 17-year-old student makes the readers of your newspaper say, "Oh, there's another Hoover student doing no good." If it were a student from Crescenta Valley High School who died he/she would've been called a "17-year-old leader of the community."
